Filter Epic Panel

Trying to reduce the amount of 'clutter' on the Epic panel and have been experimenting with Quick Filters (following guidance from this posting: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/159375/has-atlassian-implemented-a-filter-mechanism-for-the-epic-panel-in-the-plan-view)

My quick filter looks like:

(issuetype=epic and issuekey in linkedissues( GA-35)) or issuetype in (story, bug, task, sub-task)

which should give only the Epics that are linked to "GA-35" and all the other issuetypes. BUT, this doesn't limit the Epics in the panel.

How can I accomplish this?

What I'm really trying to do is bring focus to my peeps on the Epics identified by the quickfilter.

Peter -

You may want to vote for https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-7174which describes this scenario. I added a Link from it to this post.

It's not possible at the moment. Epics are only filtered by the main filter of the rapid board itself.

Henning - thanks for the comment, answers the question, but not a very satisfying answer. Would seem to be more congruent to apply the board filter, then apply any quick filters, then display the results (epics, stories, tasks, etc.). Don't see the rationale behind excluding Epics from the quick filters. Having those extra Epics there just clutters the page and makes it more difficult to manage the project.

John - thanks for the link - will go cast my ballot.

I totally agree, Peter (and I voted for GHS-7174) :-)

the answer is, you can't (despite what the doc and other posts suggest).
