Create issues from Confluence, 'Link to Epic' is missing

When I create JIRA issues from the product requirements template in Confluence, the 'Link to Epic' setting is missing.

Screenshot of feature that is missing is:

This feature seems like it would be very valuable to have and I am unable to figure out how to get it to show.

Anybody have expierience in this area?

Hi Robert, you need to have an existing link to an Epic in the same Confluence page in order to see the opition to link issues with the Epic.


It doesn't work for me, any idea?

The descripted solution doesn't work for me as well. Epic link is embedded in the same confluence page but when I pull up the "create issue" dialog no epic link checkbox is shown.

There is an actual problem in confluence where the above answer may not be the resolution. See

This is affecting me on Confluence server 6.9.0 linked with JIRA 7.9.2
