Hello,

You can find an answer to your question in the following article:

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Answers-Developer-Questions/How-to-set-an-epic-link-in-a-script/qaq-p/506138

The idea is:

To Set epic link  you have to use the same api as to set any other custom field value to an issue.  First you get reference to the Epic link field.  Secondly you set it using MutableIssue or IssueService like in the example above.

Thank you Matveev! Very helpful!
