An epic can span more than one project, if multiple projects are included in the board to which the epic belongs.
This page describes how to view epics. Read the following topics to learn more about working with epics.
Viewing an epic
Go to the Backlog to see a list of epics at the left of the screen. Drag-and-drop epics to re-order them (note, this also changes how they are ordered in the Active Sprints). Click an epic's name to view all the issues belonging to that epic, across all sprints (see screenshot below).
- Filtering by version takes precedence over filtering by epic. This means that if you have a version selected on your board (see Planning a Version), then epics that do not have any issues in the version will be greyed out.

You can also view an epic issue in JIRA to see a list of the stories (issues) it contains:

Epic Link field to search for an epic's issues — see the JIRA JQL documentation for details.
