I added stories and tasks and linked them to an epic. Then I realized I needed to change the title of the epic. That was easy. However, it isn't painfully obvious how I change the epic label/tag to reflect a more appropriate epic title. Kanban board.
At first, I didn't see the ability to 'edit', nor do I see the 'epic name field'. Then I realized I was on some 'new' look page. Switching to the 'old view' showed the steps you provided, and I was able to update the field. The new view page didn't have that functionality, or if it did, it was buried in some other settings menu.
Long time listener, first time caller, so thanks for your time.
Thanks Ryan. Why were so many of these needed and useful fields removed from the "new look"? It seems like the new look has made my life a lot harder administering JIRA than it used to be. Yes, the old view had "extra" fields, but this answer (which I had to use myself to update the label of an epic title that my boss had changed) illustrates how much functionality was lost when the new look was enacted. Things I used to do with one click for Edit (commenting, fix versions, etc) are now hidden behind multiple clicks.
In current versions, I still/ again have the "old view" option.
