Team finished sprint and delivered all issues which were part of multiple epics. All issues had been closed together with sprint. When I tried to remove epic from the list of epics, I tried marking them ‘Done’. However, I am receiving error "This issue cannot be edited because of its workflow status."
I have admin rights but I am still stuck not knowing what to do to resolve this workflow status. Any guidance?
Epics are shown if associated with them User stories or other issues are shown on the board based on the filter that the board uses.
For example: Epic 1 have 3 User stories. Two ot them are Done and 1 is To Do.
As long as tasks no matter of their status are shown on the Board the Epic will be shown too.
So to remove the Epic you have to make such as the filter does not show the User Stories.
Regardingthe Epic status - can you provide more information - what is the workflow, in what status the Epic is, etc. Screenshot will help as well.
I have reviewed above approach but I still cannot see an option to remove the Epic when clicking on the arrow where you set color (and Edit Name and View in JIRA). Also, the Epic is in status InProgress and can be edited.
I am admin on the project.
All issues connected with this Epic are closed, not visible on the board anymore.
No quick filter has been set hiding possibly open tickets on the board.
Any good ideas?
Found the answer by exploring the UI:
Even if the Epic issue is "DONE", it will show up in the Epics panel. To mark as done and remove from Epics panel in Backlog, you have to go to the Epic and there's a dropdown next to the name of the Epic to "Mark as Done":
