Hi Marcin,

simply use the move functionality as with every other Jira issue:

ok so now for my real question...

@Thomas, , what happens if the epic has associated stories/tasks? Assume you have to move separately and re-associate?

they keep their associations. It's a little bit strange then - the Epic is in the new project, the associated story in the old one.

You have to move the story also. But moving a story moves their task also. 

(I can't add the 'at Jack Brickey'-tag  - invalid HTML...)

thanks. makes sense so now we know...

yep same thing. 

Can you move an EPIC from one board (i.e., created in one board) to another board of the same project?  thank you

@Kim-Oanh Pham, yes you just need to update your board templates such that it is removed from one board and appears on the other.
