Use "move" from the tools menu in the issue view.

After I moved Epics are not visible in Epic view, but is shown if I can see when I enter URL. is that expected?

I am the admin using Classic Software Projects but I dont see the option to move epics between projects.
Its not available. I've tried on epics that have no link to other epic or even ones with no tasks in them at all. There is no option for me.
Is it a setup problem that caused this?

When I move the Epics it is asking me to fill in the Epic name.. but i am moving 4 at a time?

What should i put in this field as it is required?? I definitely want to retain all 4 epic names.

Epic names should remain unchanged.

Try Bulk operations. Should work hopefully

EPIC type should behave the same way when you "move" issues between projects.

You simply use the Move operation. However, moving an epic does not move the underlying issues so they must be moved separately. The move operation is found under the ellipses when viewing the issue detail view.
