But how do I implement this?

Hi Amol,

Maybe I don't understand your question.  There's a standard field called "Epic Link."  It's a dropdown selection type of field that shows your Epics in the format:  Epic name - (PROJECT-123).

The end user can select the correct epic by scrolling through the list or simply by typing the epic name or the epic's ID.

Can you just add that field to your Story screen(s).  You shouldn't need a new custom field.

Hope this answers your question,

Rachel Wright
