Can I show Epics from other projects in the Scrum Backlog?

I have a Scrum Backlog with two projects in it. My Epics are in one project and my Stories are in the other project. My Epics do now show up in the Scrum Backlog neither under the Epics Pane nor in the text for each issue in the Backlog.


How do I get these Epics to show on the Scrum Backlog?

yes. Update filter query for your board (General pane in the board configuration)

What are the names of the two projects? What does the Board Query look like?

I am also experiencing the same issue, I have one project with epics and other project with tasks and stories. If anyone can help with some details or a sample query that will be appreciated. Thanks

The default Scrum Board query looks something like this – 

project = ABC ORDER BY Rank ASC


To add a second project to the query, you could modify it like so – 

project = ABC OR project = DEF ORDER BY Rank ASC
project in (ABC, DEF) ORDER BY Rank ASC

Thanks Steven Behnke! It works.
