Is it possible to give a different code on the epics?

what do you mean by different "code". If you mean to say you wish to have a different issue key prefix, e.g. instead of ABC-123 you want DEF-123, then no. The issue key is a combination of project key and a sequential number of all issuetypes in the project.

Hi Jack!

It is about the Epic-Link code, not the issue key.

@Jack he is reffering to an epic not to an issue/story. Does the answer still apply?

Jack Community Leader Nov 24, 2020

yes. an epic is no different than any other issuetype where issuekey is concerned.

@Milan Mainassy , i don't know what "epic-link code" is. and epic link is just a link associated w/ a given epic and it can be used in underlying stories/tasks to associate them w/ the epic. Please explain your use case in detail.
