How to see Epics in the backlog in the new view?

David Holman January 8, 2024

In the old view, when I turned off the Epics panel I could see the Epics in the stacked list. Now in the new view I can't seem to figure out how to make that work.

What am I missing?

Just to clarify … I know how to flip the Epics panel on/off. What I'm trying to do is show the Epics directly in the Scrum backlog list alongside other issue types.

Hey, @David Holman. You should be able to switch on/off the Epic panel at the bottom of the filter list in the Epic dropdown filter in your Backlog view.

I found a discussion in 12 Jul 2018,  https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/Viewing-epics-in-the-backlog/qaq-p/842878

 only way of showing epics (at the moment) is via the epics panel. Just checked on of our Scrum boards. They will always be shown in the epics panel. 

I've the same query here to determine if jira epic can be seen in Backlog view, so that by assign them to a sprint, it can be shown up in Timeline view, with the same behavior as issue type =story and task.

Hi @David Holman , i'm not quite sure what view you're asking about. I don't recall being able to turn off epic panel previously. I may have just missed that or maybe it was a TMP behavior? You can turn on/off the epic panel by clicking on the epic drop-down, and at the bottom enable that feature.

You've been able to deactivate the Epics panel in a Scrum project backlog for a long time. The difference is that previously the Epics themselves would then show up in the backlog. It can be confusing in some instances, but I'm working on a project where it would be helpful.
