Jira Next Gen - How do I enable the Epic filter in the backlog view?

At the top of the backlog I used to see the Epic Names filter, I'm not seeing it anymore.  Is there a setting that has changed that needs to be reverted?

Hi Justin,

For the Epic filter to appear in the backlog and board, it's necessary to have Epics in the project.
If no Epics were created, it won't show this option.
