Epics don't show in Jira Software Next-Gen project issue advanced filter

Chris Drumgoole March 9, 2020

IN the Advanced Issue Filter, I add  the Epic Name column, but it's always empty. Do I need to do anything in the settings to enable this? thanks

Nope. Broken for 2+ years now. Welcome to Jira!

What you can do is search for "Parent", which will:

  • Provide the Epic Name in Filters
  • Provide nothing in ScriptRunner
  • Provide the Issue # in the Google Sheets plugin

Why it has 3 behaviors- and why it's "Parent" and not "Epic Name"- is beyond me. But you can get it that way, unless you're using scriptrunner, in which case you're screwed.

What we ended up doing was creating a customfield called EPIC and having a ScriptRunner script populate that field.

AH! yes, parent does show the epic. thanks.
