Hi @tvishakha ,

Out of the box the Parent Link field is not available in Epic, it is only available if you enabled the Portfolio for Jira add-on.

Another workaround for this if you are not interested to use Portfolio for Jira is to use the Link Types.

Hi Thanks for your explanation.

What link type i should go with, can you please help me with example.

Sure, you can create your own Link Type to support the parent of Epic.

Outward =  "Parent Of"

Inward = "Child Of"

So when it is time to link the child to the parent you just pick the "Parent Of" link type, I know its very elementary but it does the job.

:-) great thanks, it worked for me . 

One more query ,if you can help, i will be thankfull.

while creating Gantt chart , i added filters like - Effort Duration, Dependency on others, Action needed but how to add values in those fields , refer yellow highlighted fields in attached screenshot.Capture.PNG

Hi @tvishakha ,

May I know what tool / add-on you are using the generate the Gantt? 

Most likely you will need to create a custom field and map it to the schemes.
