I am creating this feature request as
JSWSERVER-12016 was closed without providing an actual solution to the problem. In an organisation that has hundreds of projects, the number of epics gets large. When I create an issue in my project, I would like to only see the epics and sprints in my project. I understand that other users may have a need to manage epics at a cross project level, but I should still be able to configure my project or my board to show me only the stuff I want to see at issue creation time. I currently have to create issues and than use drag and drop in the backlog view to assign them to epics and sprints. This makes creating issues in Jira a bit of a pain.
