Can't add the "Epic Name" field to a team-managed project

Hi there everyone, I have a very frustrating problem I have spent hours on that I hope you can help me with.  A co-worker created a team-managed project.  (it's the only team managed one we have out of about 20 total projects).  As I was putting together a query to search with the parameter of "Epic Name" I noticed that it wasn't showing up as a potential field for that project.  After reading about 40 articles it's beginning to look like I can't simply add this field when I go into the project settings > Issues > Fields > Custom fields.  It will let me add a label of some sort and name it "Epic Name", but it's not showing up when I try to query for "Epic Name"  when searching my instance of Jira globally.  Am I out of luck?  Do I need to create a company managed project and use the same issue scheme we used for all our other projects?  I just want a way to add that exact field to the Epics in the new team-managed project, but it's looking like it's not possible.  Please help!  :/.  (I am an admin)

Hi @Logan Cummins,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

Epics in a team-managed project doesn't have Epic name, it is using the Summary as the name, similar to the change that is now rolling out the company-managed projects.
