How To View All Epics In Jira

If you’re using JIRA for project management, you may have experienced difficulty navigating the various tasks and lists. A helpful method for streamlining your process is utilizing Epics in JIRA. Epics are large portions of work with a shared goal, broken down into smaller user stories and completed over multiple sprints. To learn how to view your Epics in JIRA, follow our comprehensive guide in this blog post.

Step 1: Go to your JIRA dashboard

After logging in to your JIRA account, you’ll be directed to your JIRA dashboard. This is where you can see all your projects, tasks, and Epics.

Step 2: Open the desired project

From your JIRA dashboard, open the project that contains the Epics you want to view.

Step 3: Select the ‘Backlog’ option

Once you’re inside the project, select the ‘Backlog’ option from the menu on the left side of the screen.

Step 4: View Epics

Now you’re in the project backlog where you can view all issues. To view the Epics, click on ‘EPICS’ on the left side of the screen. This will bring up a list of all your Epics.

Filter Epics in JIRA

If your list of Epics is too long, you can use JIRA’s filter function to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. For instance, you can filter Epics based on their status (e.g., ‘To Do’, ‘In Progress’, or ‘Done’). To filter Epics, go to the ‘Issues’ tab on your JIRA dashboard and select ‘Search for issues’.

You can then use the basic search to filter by project, issue type (in this case, Epic), and status. Alternatively, you can use the advanced search for more specific filters. For instance, you can filter out all Epics assigned to a particular person.

Here’s how to do it using JIRA’s Query Language (JQL):

            project = "Your Project Name" AND issuetype = Epic AND assignee = "Assignee's Name"

With these steps, you can comfortably view and manage all Epics in your JIRA software. Happy project managing!


Understanding how to view all Epics in JIRA is crucial to effective project management. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you’ll be able to locate and work with your Epics easily and streamline your project management process.
