I can't find the option "add a epic" in a opened issue?What I have to do?

I was traing to add a epic in a opened issue, but when I cliked on (...) I couldn't find "add a epic" as option.

There is anything change in a Jira software or there is a bug with my user account?


Thank you.

Hi Thallyta - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Are you using Server or Cloud? 

Also, remember that you can always create an Epic by clicking on the Create Issue icon. The choose Epic for the Issue Type. An Epic is just another type of issue and can be created in the same manner. 

Hi John.


Thank you for your feedback.


I'm using cloud. When I try to add an epic in opened issue I can't find the option "aad an epic".

I was adding an epic in an opened issue before, but I can't do it anymore.

I don't know how to do it again

Have you tried the Change issue parent option? I think they may have just done a name change. I don't use Sprints so I can't directly check. 

But I would suggest you give that a try. 

It's work. Thank you for your help ;)
