Planning board : How to associate/add a task to a story

After creating story for a sprint, how to associate this story to a previously created epic. How to make epic parent of story/task? One way is to convert story to sub-task but this not the solution to associate a story to an epic.

I couldn't find any way to do this.

Since you mentioned sprint, I assume you are using Rapid board's Plan mode, instead of the planning board. Epics are not available on the Rapid Board yet.

In that case, let me modify my question a bit. How to add/associate task to a user story?

If you prefer not to use subtasks, JIRA issue links between stories and tasks could work. Have you tried that?
