Next-gen epic name not appearing in filter?

Hi all,

I'm trying to create a dashboard filter for a next gen project than includes the 'Epic Name' column, but my resulting filter doesn't display the epic names (the column is blank). 

Can anybody help?  Not sure if this is a Jira bug, or if I'm doing something wrong.

Hi Danny,

Currently, it's not possible to see Epic information from next-gen projects. It affects not only Epic name but also color, link and status.
We have a feature request suggesting the implementation of this ability:

Thanks Angélica.  Not sure I'd agree with this being a new feature, I'd describe it as an existing bug... why include them as options if they don't work?  Thanks for letting me know anyway, hopefully it gets sorted soonish! :)

For anyone who is wondering - I've since discovered that you can use 'parent' to show the epic names.

I have got around the issue by creating a new drop-down field that has allowed me to filter on the selection.  The process is detailed below:- 

  1. Create a new drop-down field  i.e. Epic Name (Project Settings->Issue types) and add epic names and associate the new field to the relevant Issue Type i.e. Requirements, Stories etc 
  2. Update all ticket with new field and select correct drop-down name (you could do this with a bulk change but can be fiddley.
  3. Allow Issues in Features in (Project Settings -> Features -> Issue navigator)
  4. Navigate to Issues select Project, Type, Status, and select + More add new drop-down field i.e. Epic Name

You can now sort tickets by relevant Epic Name


  • You could also add the Epic Name Field as a Column,
  • This will help with Dashboards if you save the search/ filter
