We have multiple projects all with many epics, and each epic may or may not have stories and tasks associated to it. I am looking to be able to limit the epics that show on the epic panel with a filter. Easiest example is I ant to only show epics that are in Open or In Progress Satus, not closed Epics. Over tiem adn across many projects that the team works, we are seeing a verylarge list of Epics where most are closed or not relevant to the team. I can set a filter on teh issues showing up in the backlog, but I still see all the Epics on the far left.
Hi Mick, I met you at Atlassian Summit in 2009, how've you been?
1 thing: closed epics should not be appearing in the epic panel. Are you using the "Mark as Done" menu item in the epic dropdown?
How many projects are on your board, and how many epics are you showing? How many are actually relevant and in play at any given time?
Is the board being used by just one team?
Hi Jay, yes that was a good night and a good long walk! Nice to hear from you again. We have up to 5 projects showing, and over 100 epics showing on teh lsiting. I will have to check with the teams to see if they are Markign as done. I did find another option though. On the board config filter, I created a filter search by issuetype Epic and status in (xxx) OR issutype bug AND status in (xxx) and so on, and it seems to work as well. Looks like there are a few options to solve this at this point, with some config work. I will try a few other ideas and post up here, and close this out shortly.
I think the feature you are looking for is a way to remove epics from the "epic panel" based upon a customizable filter. This I do not think exists.
An workaround that you could do easily is to create a quick filter for issues in epic by status.
Heres a doc on how to configure your board which will show you step by step how to add quick filters.
Hope this helps.
OK looks like we have a few solutions that will work, not all the most graceful solutions, but one of the options above ios bound to help people out. Creating a filter and applying to the board that calls for issue type by issuetype filtration by status, if simply wanting to filter closed Epic's, making sure to "Mark as Done". Thansk all for the input!
