I appreciate this might not be as good as a fix, but there is a workaround you could try:
It's not ideal but given you can include the URL on your Jira project side-bar, its an option for now :)
I echo @Martin Anastasov 's comment above
We have exactly the same issue with Roadmaps, it isn't just 'Done' EPICs I don't want to see on there, it's also the 'ongoing work' EPICS and the 'loose' undefined EPICs with no proposed start date yet that I wouldn't want to see.
A simple hide feature would suffice.
As you can see from our doc Get started with next-gen projects
In a next-gen board, if an issue sits in the Done column for more than 14 days, it automatically gets archived. You can view all archived issues by selecting the Looking for an older issue? button.
If your project is new, you won't be able to see this button for now, you'll need to wait a few days and then those issues will, automatically, be archived.
Let me know if this helps!
Same dealio yo. Might the crickets speak up?
Also interested to know if others are keen to be able to sort the Epic order in the board as well (hint: I am). If so please upvote the item below.
Hi @Ben Jackson ,
Thanks for picking this up.
I'm antisocial media so can't tweet you. Simple 2-minute fix is to just set the roadmap as filtered by default to only show active epics.
Then the user can choose to see historical epics by setting the filter to all epics.
I have a question for everyone here. If done epics are removed from the roadmap do you have a need to see them again at some point?
See them again from where? The Roadmap? (Regardless of what the precise context is, I'm sure someone somewhere will need to see them again.)
I would be happy if the filters of "todo", "in progress", and "done" would persist across browser sessions, similar to how the "Views" filters persist (see attached image).
Same as @AL FOR, I also bookmarked the page with the filter preset to "to do" and "in progress".
Not having filter persistent is definitely not ideal, it makes content less discover-able by the rest of the team (aka nobody will looks at them).
Furthermore, this issue extends to the new the Confluence Roadmap Macro.
Very nice feature to share content with people outside Jira.
However this time there is no way to save the filter (even if you paste the link with the filter preset)
So the confluence macro ends up looking like this:
Very informative page...
@designedbyben I bumped in to the same probelm with @Jacques Barbe I am trying to use the confluence roadmap macro, but since there is no way for me to filter the relevant epics, then the macro ended up looks chaotic, especially since I am running a program which consist of multiple project running in parallel, it would be very helpful to be able to implement this, thanks.
Agree with you guys - I've inherited a roadmap with 20 - 30 epics on it, many of which are long since done. The roadmap is a bit too messy to be useful. I don't want to delete old epics as it is useful to keep the documentation somewhere, hence the need to be able to remove or unlink epics from a roadmap.
@Ben JacksonWhile you guys are on it, I think that the best way to go about this is to add a flag or setting for each epic which controls whether or not it shows up on the roadmap.
In my opinion completed Epics are one part of the story that clogs up the roadmap view but we also have Epics which are related to miscellaneous items or bugfixes and more or less document "ongoing" work - I definitely do not want to see those on the roadmap as well. The roadmap view also implies that every epic has a start and due date which again is not the case for all Epics - some are extremely long term and it makes no sense to keep them on a roadmap.
So please, add a simple feature that just shows or hides epics on the roadmap - we can then decide whether we will select done epics or any other combination
@Martin Anastasov that would be a great solution. We have the same issue. Ongoing tasks which should also be exluded in the view.
Also the filter solution for in progress and done is not ideal as the filter relates to the attached issue i believe. I can filter out "DONE" but i still see done Epics if they still have attached stories which are not done. The filter should work on the Epic status and not on the connected issues
Came here for the same problem. At least there is (after as always a year later) a followup but (again) no concrete date for this simple problem: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWCLOUD-17996?focusedCommentId=2441230&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-2441230
I would think that I could remove unwanted epics/issues from the roadmap by simple selecting only those that fall within the "To Do" or "In Progress" status but it seems it still grabs issues that don't fit the selected criteria, so not only does it lack the basic filtering features, but the one that is in production is broken.
This wouldn't be so frustrating if it wasn't such a simple addition, almost positive an intern could figure this out. Out of respect to this community that Atlassian is trying to communicate they could provide at least some type of response.
