Change parent option no longer available

Hi all,

Over the weekend it looks like the Change Parent option previously available from the context menu (...) against issues has been removed. At the same time, we now seem to have an Actions Menu, but the Change Parent option can't be located within there. I don't expect it's a permissions issue since myself and colleague who have been looking for this option over the last few days have the highest privileges.

We were able to locate a change parent option within the move function, but only for sub-tasks, not for issues.

Any ideas?

Thank you,

Hi @Diane v 

Can you click on the 'epic link' field and choose a new Epic from the dropdown as per below:




That's a great idea, thank you Liam! I was so in the habit of using change parent I didn't think of this before!

Hi Diane - If you select the option for Move, you will see the ability to change parent on the next screen. 

Thanks for the reply, but per my original post, change parent is not available within the move function for issues (it is for sub-tasks), please refer below:

If you are on the Sub-task issue itself, and then click on Move, you should see this:


Is that not what you see? 

Hi John, No, it's not, because it's for an "Issue" rather than a "Sub-Task"... The change parent function was available for Issues previously as well.
