Filtering Scrum Board by Epic

I have a JIRA project and want to create multiple boards for this project. I have filtered each board by epic (i.e. epic link in (a,b,c)) but when I do this, the filters work but the the epic info is not shown on the board. Is there a preferred/recommended way of doing this?

In order to have the epic appear on that board, you need to create a JQL query that also includes that epic in the search results.   Otherwise the epic will not appear on that board.    Since your existing JQL based off the epic link you can't link the epic to itself, so you would need to change the query from:

epic link in (a,b,c)

to something like

epic link in (a,b,c) OR issuetype=epic

This would include all the issues that have an epic link to those 3 epics, as well as all the epics that exist on that JIRA instance.   If you don't want to see all the epics here then you would need to get more specific about which ones to include such as


epic link in (a,b,c) OR key in(ABC-55,ABC-77,ABC-99)

Where those issues keys are the specific Epic issue keys you want to see on this board.
