Create a Jira Story under an Epic

Elise I'm New Here May 20, 2022

I want to create all my epics and stories from Confluence.

When I open the Jira Macro, I can select a Project Name and what I want to create: an Epic, a Story, a Task. 

I need to link my stories to the Epic but I can't see a way to select my Epic. I can only select a Project space.

I don't want to have to go to Jira.

I want to manage everything from one place: Confluence. 

How can I create my stories within Confluence and select the Epic in addition of the Project space?

Hi @Elise Amariat  Welcome to Atlassian Community!

You can make JIRA fields visible on Confluence jira macro by making them Mandatory in JIRA but not all the fields are compatible with in JIRA macro. 

Unfortunately Epic Link  field doesn't visible on JIRA macro even after making them mandatory. You have to go back to JIRA to add Epic link.
