How can I stop seeing epics from other projects?

Is there a way to filter out certain projects so that you don't see their epics in Epic Link?

3 answers

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. 

I can't think of any reason at all you'd want to see epics across projects. Those issues that @Petter Gonçalves links to above are from 2012 and 2014!!

Sometimes I feel like the people at Atlassian don't use Jira to build Jira, otherwise they'd know of all these annoyances.

I guess it would be fine if your only project in Jira was Jira ;)

Hello @stucampbell

Thank you for reaching out.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to restrict the Epics displayed in the "Epic link" field by projects in Jira application.

We have the following feature requests created to get this option implemented:

Improve or limit suggestions to a set of projects when linking issues to Epics

List of Epics may get very long, we would like to see some filtering capability 

Feel free to vote and watch the suggestion to increase its priority and also receive notifications about any updates.

Let us know if you have any questions.
