How to assign a story to an epic?

Hi guys,

I have a couple of stories created already and I would like to add them to one of my epics.
(you can see my epic "PAC II" created with one new story I created directly on the roadmap screen assign to it) 

How can I assign the others I created just pressing the plus button on the sidebar? Didn't find a way to. (no "assign to epic" option/combo during creating)


Could you help me with that?

Hi Marcelo,

I'm having difficulties to understand where you want to add your stories to the Epic. But I think still the easiest way to achieve this is to either select multiple issues from the backlog and pull them on to the Epic or use the "Create issue in epic" link on the left-hand panel.

Best, Max



Thank you so much for your answer Max!


I believe we are using different versions of the interface.
So I will try to explain it better in this new screenshot.


Hope it's clearer now. (I want those stories to be children of the epic PAC II, as the last one at the bottom).

And thanks in advance for all the help!
