As a digital agency with a large client portfolio, this "cross-contamination" for us undermines our customers' confidence in privacy and security. At a minimum, there should be a configurable option to constrain epics to the current project.
I understand that other Jira customers have a need to show epics from more than a single project, but that should be OUR choice - not YOURS. Please add my support to this request.
THIS IS RIDICULOUS. Why would I want to see epics from other projects?? At least gray them out/make them non-selectable excepting the applicable project. This is stunningly obvious and it is beyond the beyond that this has been an issue for pushing a decade and Atlassian has done nothing about it.

Upvoted both issues, this is rather annoying, I agree, not run into it before, but now we're at a company using several boards and projects and we see general epics everywhere, not only "our own". That's rather confusing and seems like some sort of cross-contamination...
I understand your frustration regarding the lack of this functionality.
As a matter of fact, I would like to let you know that our development team has done a few improvements to the Epic drop-down list, based on the feedback provided by the customers.
Now, the Epic drop-down list follows the order of displaying below, from top to bottom:
Additionally, there is also a flag button to display/hide done Epics:
I hope this information helps your team to easily identify and select the correct epics.
