I feel like I'm missing something very basic here:
We haven't used Epics in our environment until now, so I've just enabled them (screens, layouts, etc.) When I go into a recently created Epic issue, I have the button to "Create Issue in Epic".
However, doing so will create the issue, but does not automatically link it to the Epic. I can go into the issue and select the Epic Link and then it will show up in the Epic, but I would expect that to take place as part of creating the issue from inside the Epic.
Am I missing something in my configuration?
This is a company-managed project - I figured out the issue (Posting it here for any others in the same boat).
Resolution: The Epic Link field must be in the Create Issue screen for it to be populated with the Epic Name when creating an issue from the button "Create Issue in Epic" on the Epic issue.
