How to bring back an epic into the Epic Panel after it's been "Marked as Done" ?

I don't understand how the "Mark as Done" action from the Epic Panel works exactly.  It doesn't seem to change the status or the resolution of the pic BUT it removes it from the Epic Panel.  

I searched a bit everywhere but couldn't find any way to make my epic reappear in the panel.  What am I missing ?

@Anto ,



You are right, when you mark an Epic as done, it'll not change Status or Resolution values.


In Jira, there is another field called Epic Status which is specific to Epics and it's different from the Workflow status. "Mark as Done" action sets the Epic Status to Done. You will notice this in the history panel of the epic which is marked as done.

To bring the Epic back to Epic panel of a board, you need to revert the Epic Status field value.

Make sure you have Epic Status field to View/Edit issue screens on your project. 

Then open the Epic and change the Epic Status field to To Do / In Progress.

Note: Epic Status field is not visible in the new issue view. We have been tracking this as a feature request: JRACLOUD-73469. So, you need to open the Epic in old view.

Thanks a lot, you nailed it.  And thanks for the heads up about JRACLOUD-73469, I have upvoted the issue.
