Show done epics

Jira Software uses the Epic Status field to denote whether an epic is Done or not. You can 'Mark as Done' via the Epic panel on the backlog:

Today when you select 'Show done epics' under the views dropdown on the story map you will see all of those issues which are in the Epic Status 'Done' or the Jira Status Category 'Done'. 

Status Category Filtering

From the View dropdown in the top right (...) you are able to select the three Jira Status Categories: To Do, In Progress, Done.

Hide Epics

Hide Epics using Quick Filters. Simply create a quick filter that hides the epics you no longer want to see and ensure that you have 'Apply quick filters' checked under the View dropdown (...).

Filtering the Story Map

You can use any Quick Filter defined in your Agile Board to filter your Story Map.

Focus mode can be used to hide empty rows and columns. Focus Mode used in combination with Quick filters can be helpful when dealing with a large Story Map by focusing down to a specific subset of issues.
