Hide Closed Epics from backlog view

I currently have a good number of Epic stories that have been closed, but they still show up on the left side of my backlog list. Is there a way to remove or hide epics that are closed?

If you have admin permissions on the board you can change the filter query being used to exclude issues that are closed.

Yes you can do this by selecting the option "Mark as done" that will set the Epic Status to Done.

Remember that is not the Issue Status.

 

We've implemented advanced epic pane filtering.

Have a look at the discussion here:

Found the answer by exploring the UI:

 

Even if the Epic issue is "DONE", it will show up in the Epics panel. To mark as done and remove from Epics panel in Backlog, you have to go to the Epic and there's a dropdown next to the name of the Epic to "Mark as Done":
