I accidentally changed an Epic, which was linked in thousands of issues, to a Task. This un-linked all of the Issues. Yes, major face-palm, I know.
Is there any way to restore the Epic Link to all of the Issues that previously had them?
Hi @Yair Spolter,
I was able to reproduce the issue (obviously) but I don't really have good news. I couldn't find an easy way to restore the issues linked to that epic. However you can view the issues that were linked to the Epic in the history. Thus there's a way to figure our which issues were linked.
Hope this helps.
Just so we are looking in the right direction a few questions:
I'd love to help search for an easy restore solution but I'm afraid restoring a backup will most likely be the easiest way.
Thanks for your help Maarten.
We are on Jira server.
We do have Kanban etc.
I changed the "Type" from Epic to Task
I want to restore the the issues being linked to the Epic through the Epic Link field.
Restoring a backup means going back to a previous state (which affects ALL changeds made since)?
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
