Epics not showing up in the Epic Panel

Hello everyone,


I've created several epics, but I cannot assign existing issues to them because they're not showing up in the Epic Panel, check image:




And I can see the Epics by looking at the Issues:




Weird thing, if a Filter by Issue Type and select Epic...nothing shows up:



Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I'm trying to assign existing issues to the epics I've created before, but no luck...

Two initial thoughts

1) Bit of a long shot, I suspect you've checked this already - in your first screenshot, do you get anything if you click on the "Epics" next to versions and above all issues?  (I'm expecting you to say "nothing happens" to be honest)

2) Are you sure you are raising genuine Agile Epics?  You don't just have a normal issue type called "Epic"?

Hello Nic,


1) True, nothing happens


2) Not really sure what you mean with genuine Agile epics. I create the epics either from the "create Epic" link in the Epic panl OR from the Create button on the top bar. And yes, I do have a Issue Type called "Epic"...
