Bit of context: Setting up a couple forms for easier issue generation and within my team's project we're requiring epic links for a majority of the issue types.
I've had no issues linking other ProForma fields to existing & custom Jira fields, but when navigating through the Linked Jira Field list in the ProForma form builder, there is no option for epic link.
The Epic Link field is present in the issue type this form is associated with, and I've tried the steps outlined here: https://docs.thinktilt.com/proforma/Linking-ProForma-Fields-to-Jira-Fields.1574273169.html to no avail.
I've also investigated the automation options within ProForma to see if there is a way to pre-set the epic link field upon issue creation but in-app automation options are fairly limited.
Has anyone run into a similar issue / is there a workaround for this? As it currently stands since one required field isn't showing up as a linkable option the entire form can't be submitted.
Ah I see, thank you! I'll follow-up with my Jira Admin to see if they can let me know what that Parent field is.
Once it's been determined, I should be able to link the ProForma field to the Parent field and that would satisfy the epic link requirement right? Or would it be changing the Epic Link requirement to a requirement for the Parent field and then linking that field in ProForma?
Did anyone get this to work (i.e. having a Bug created from a Form with a default Epic Link set) ?
In my Company-managed project, I have created a "Long Text" question on my Form, however "Epic Link" is not an available option in the "Link to Jira Field" dropdown.
It has "Epic Name", but I'm unable to have that accurately set the Epic Name or Epic Link value when creating a Bug.
I tried the workarounds in the original link with no success.
I tried the same exact thing but it doesn't work
I am trying the same getting a bug to link to an epic upon intake and the only solution i can see available (but fails) is to prepopulate the "Epic Link" field with a default of the literal Epic Name . Issue key is not available for selection ... Also tried hardcoding the URL of the issue (epic) but the jira fields dont map to urls.. Other ideas welcomed. This is a software project that I'm an admin of.
