Linking Existing Epics to New Project for Initiatives


I created a new project to contain Initiatives that all of our teams will work on, and I am planning on pulling that project into Portfolio.  Currently, each of our teams are setup as individual projects, and each team has multiple epics, stories, etc. that they work on.  My question is, how do I link the epics from the existing projects to the newly created initiatives project?


For example, I have a project called "Team1" that has an epic in it called "Epic1".  I have my newly created initiatives project called "MyInitiatives" that has an initiative in it called "Init1".  How do I link "Epic1" from the "Team1" project as a child to "Init1" in the "MyInitiatives" project?


We have the issue hierarchy defined as Theme > Initiative > Epic > Story > Sub-task, and those issue types are available in all the projects.
