How to Automate removal/mark as done of Epic from a board once Epic status is Done

Seems odd that when an Epic status is Done/Resolved it is not marked as done in Scrum/Kanban boards . 

i'm looking for a way to automate it

Hi Boaz,

There are actually three fields that need to get set when you finish/close an Epic - The Status field, the Epic Status field, and the Resolution. 

Make sure that you have a post function that sets both the Epic Status and the Resolution to Done when you change the Status to Done (or Epic-Closed or whatever your status name is).

just wondering why the trigger is not automated 

Thanks anyways

You always have to manually set the Resolution with a post function in your workflow because there are many transitions and many values for the Resolution field. The system would have no idea what values you want to set.
