I am in Classic Scrum Project on Jira Cloud - Free Version 

I cannot see a way to add the epics and versions side panel 

Only way to see and add epics in similar fashion is through the visually exhausting Roadmap view. 

I need to enable the Epics and Versions Side Panel.

Hello @sachi,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

In order to view the Versions and Epics panel, you can go to Backlog and click on … > Show epics/version panel.

Can you please check if the options below are visible on your site?

This option is not restricted to Cloud Plans, so it should be visible on your site.

Please, take your time to test and let us know how it goes.

Kind regards,
Angélica

Hi there,

I'm trying to view the Versions and Epics panel but the options, as above, are not available to me.

Do i need to seek permissions of some kind?

Thanks,

Paddy

Is there a way to customize this panel and change it from Epic to Initiative or Theme?

I also can't see those options in the dropdown, but inspecting the html, they're there. I unhid the "Show epics panel" button, but clicking it does nothing. I would really like to be able to organize conversations around epics in our backlog. Is this a bug? We're using a kanban board.

I am using the free version and have the same issue. I do not see those drop list options, "Manage Custom Filters" is my only option.

I'd like to get the Epics and Versions to be vertical tabs but do not see any options to configure. 

Am I missing something or is this an issue because I'm using the free version?

I would also like to know the same as Sophia as I'm also on a free version and can't see any other options apart from "Manage Custom Filters". Thank you

I was also facing similar challenge, then I was able to solve it.

- In order to enable Epic Panel option, in the View Setting section we need ot enable it in the board setting first. 

In the Board setting, go to Column section and Select - Display in Epic panel on the backlog.
