If you mean Epics that are aready marked as Done, they are not supposed to be displayed in that list, but they are being displayed due to this bug:
The name of Epics that are already marked as Done are not being displayed in list, however, their IDs are. And when you select the Epic name, it erroneously associated to the Epic that was already closed.
Please keep an eye on the bug report. Once that is fixed, the Done Epics should no longer be displayed in the dropdown.
I hope this helps!
I don't think that's what the OP meant. What they are saying is they are creating an issue in Project A and they are seeing Epics from Project A,B,C,D in the Epic Link field.
I image that they (as well as myself) were expecting that only epics that relate to the project you are creating the issue in would be displayed (or perhaps displayed in the "suggested" list).
Hi Clarissa -
After updating to JIRA Agile v184.108.40.206 the Epic Link dropdown works much better. I no longer see the IDs in the list.
However I still see "Done" epics in the list, which is the way I would like to control which epics are available for selsection. How are you defining "Done"?
In our workflow epic tickets are Resolved / Closed when completed. Epic tickets in those workflow steps are still included in the Epic Link dropdown.
Inter project epic autocompletion in the edit screen is still present in JIRA v6.4.12. This is also a real issue for us, as we have dozens of projects with dozens of epics whose names often collide and make it hard to select the correct one from the drop down. Ideally only the current project epics would be offered to the user by default, as 99% of the times it's those he's after.
Are there any plans to change this?
