Epic and Version filters on the side of a kanban board

Why can't I have the Epic and Version filters on the side of a kanban board (like I can on a Scrum board)? We use a Kanban board to manage the long-term backlog. Items move through a series of review and refinement stages. At the last stage they appear on a scrum board to create the true development backlog.

On our kanban board it would be really helpful to be able to filter by Epic.

Its a requested feature. See https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-7052

Btw, you can create swimlanes based on Epics in the latest version. Sounds like you need that?

Swimlanes don't work for us for 2 reasons: 1) We have more Epics that is practical. 2) Swimlanes makes ranking across Epics problematic.

I am guessing you will have to wait for GHS-7052 then!

We need this feature on kanban boards too. I've had to create a scrum board for our teams just because the tech leads like to use versions and epics sidebar!
