I was to filter the epic parent tickets out of our board's view. We also exclude sub-tasks. However, when I search for
"Epic Name" is EMPTY
there are zero results. Now, there are hundreds of tickets without an Epic Name. What am I doing wrong?
Epic Name is an attribute on issues with issue type Epic. Basically it is name of the Epic.
"Epic Link" is EMPTY
Epic Link is connection between an issue and parent Epic.
Epics are only represented by a single issuetype. This would be the accepted solution 99% of the time. If you have other 'epics' you've customized your JIRA application.
Epic Name is a plugin field for use by the Epic issuetype provided by JIRA Software. It's not intended to be searched for empty values. It likely wasn't developed with your intention in mind. We cannot really comment on why it acts that way.
The only use of Epic Name is to set the label on Epics. Nothing more.
