Why Epics do not appear in my kanban backlog?


Hello! Using Jira cloud, and trying to set up a new Kanban Project with a backlog. However, the Epic pane does not appear. (first image). The Epics somehow to appear in line with the stories (second image). (The data was migrated from another project)

Our Jira is very poorly set up. Any ideas?

I did notice the Epics are 'locked' but unsure what this means or how to change it. (refer to the third mage)

Closed :) (by me) 

The Epics Panel needs to be 'ticked'

Could be too late, though might be helpful to others - if epics do not show, check the filter settings (Board settings > General > Filter > Edit filter query), could be that some users that are assigned to these Epics are not ticked or the Epics are not ticked in the statuses.

for me issue was because of my board was filtered by a label and while creating the epic I was not assigning that label to my epic link. 

Ah, mine was the same. Thank you for pointing this out. You saved me a lot of time!

there is no EPIC panel 
Button to click in my Columns board settings. any suggestions? I tried the filter but what I want is simply for EPICs to Appear by Versions in the Backlog

When I turn on display epics, I am seeing the epics panel, but the epics are not showing up on that panel. How can I fix that?

I didn't see my epics appear because I missed adding "Epic" issue type in my filter query.

Now I can see my epics.


Please check if your filter query is proper?
