I'm trying to add an Epic in my Backlog screen with "+" sign (Create an issue) under the backlog list.
However it only shows Bug & Task (which I configured) issue types.
Is there any way to create an Epic in Backlog screen?
Are you using Cloud? If so, the + sign should work no matter where you are - in Backlog or not. Be sure you have chosen the right project and that Epic is an Issue Type for that Project (that it is in the Issue Type Scheme being used by that project).
So, you are saying that if you click the Plus sign on the left nav bar and choose your project, then you see Epic as an Issue Type in the list?
But if you click on Create Issue inside the Backlog screen you don't see Epic in the list for the same project?
If so, that is very strange as it works on my project. If that is is the case, you should open a support ticket with Atlassian. Sorry I can't provide more helpful information.
