Is it possible to restrict epic under epic issuetype?

Hello Team,

When using the "+" button to create an issue under an epic in the Jira project, it is allowing to create Epic issue type. 

Jira allows to select the "Epic" issue type when creating an issue under an Epic. For the "normal" issue types everything is fine/as expected. Is there a way to hide the Epic issue type in the "Create issue in epic" dialog under Epic?

Hi Prashant,

Under epic, you can only get options to create issues of task-level like stories, tasks, etc.

If you share the ss it would be easier to understand the error.

Yes, generally the instructions  for adjusting the issue types using scriptrunner behaviour are here: in

But we can simplify the example and wrap the logic in a block to check that the Epic Link field is populated.

Something like this

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import static com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFieldConstants.ISSUE_TYPE

def epicLinkField = getFieldByName('Epic Link')

def allIssueTypes = ComponentAccessor.constantsManager.allIssueTypeObjects
def issueTypeField = getFieldById(ISSUE_TYPE)
def availableIssueTypes = []

   availableIssueTypes.addAll(allIssueTypes.findAll { != 'Epic' })
