Hi Edward - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

The field is called Epic Link. Just edit the screen to add it. 

John,

 

Thanks for the response.  I want to add the "Epic Name" field to the "Issue " Screen.   I click the "Configure"  widget at the bottom and move it to the "visible " Description fields area and I save.  However I do not see it on the screen.   What step did I leave out?

 

Thanks,

Edward

You cannot add the Epic Name to regular issues. You have to use the Epic Link field. 

OK. So I link to a spreadsheet that has the epic names in them?

 

Thx.

No, there is a field called Epic Link that you need to add to your screen.
