I'm used to the Server version where there is a field "Epic Link" under "Custom" when I click "Configure Fields" button with Gear icon in "Edit Issue" view. This is where you select which fields to display when creating a new issue.
I can't find this field in the Cloud version which I've just started using:
How can I add this field so I can assign an issue to the correct epic at time of creation?
Team-managed (Next-gen) projects are what they say they are - their configuration is managed by the team that owns the project, and the configuration stays local to that project. Server Jira does not have team-managed projects, only company-managed.
Your alternative is company-managed projects, configured mainly by Jira admins, and intended for teams that are going to work closely together in similar ways and therefore should be sharing a lot of their configurations.
Thanks Nic. Given the arm wrestling I've done with admins to get even small changes made, that sounds like a philosophy straight from heaven. What I can't wrap my head around is that the actual implementation kills the logical and simple "press C, fill the form top to bottom, and submit" workflow. I'm sure lots of testing and pivoting took place and that this works for the majority of other users. I'll figure out the intended workflow sequence and adapt my way of work.
Thanks for your answer and education :-)
Are Epics available in your system? And what type of issue is "task" here - is it a story-level type or a sub-task type? Also, what type of project are you in, company-managed or team-managed (it should tell you at the bottom left, in the options panel)
