If you want to move some issue, you'll first need to build a jql that target the specifics issues (not mandatory but if will be more easy this way)

Then you can just make a bulk change/ add of epic link to all wanted issues.

If you want to automate this (eg you want an issue with specific label to go on a specific epic)you can build something with automation or script runner.


Hope this help
