Is it possible to prevent that a user links a story to a closed epic?

Currently I have the problem that I have a closed epic and users link there new stories to this old epic. Normally it is an mistake but it is a pity because in many boards I set my filter only to the open epics.


Is it possible to "deactivate" old, closed epics so that they disappear from the choice filed for an epic link?

You could probably setup a filter to catch issues that fall into that category. Something like this:


Oh wait. You are on JIRA Cloud. You may not get access to those JQLs.
