How to edit the epic link for multiple stories?

We are having hundreds of stories which are being moved to new board and we would like to update the epic link for all of them at once?

Can you please suggest on the bulk update process to do the same?

Hi @Aravind Sreenivas A

as already suggested, you should be able to use Jira's built-in bulk editing wizard for this. Just to put this out there, if you prefer a more interactive experience, you may want to have a look at the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira.

JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields, much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. You can also edit your issues in bulk, using copy/paste. This is how it looks in action:


As you can update up to 10000 issues in on action, you should be done with your work in no time.

Any questions just let me know,

Hi @Aravind Sreenivas A welcome to the community.  Filter out the stories you want to update.  Click on Tools Bulk Change.  Edit Issues, select the issues you want to change, change the Epic Link.  Here's a link for your review.

One theoretical (cuz i never tried it) way might be to search for the issues in question by using some JQL like

"Epic Link" = <your-old-epic-key>

Then bulk edit all results and put in a new value in "Epic Link" (i.e. the issue key of the new epic)
