UNABLE TO ADD EPIC LINK ON JIRA STORY

Roberta Patterson March 18, 2024

I am unable to add an EPIC link to any Jira story and nobody knows what authority I am missing.  It was my story that I created

 

'YOU DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO EDIT THIS EPIC, SO YOU CAN'T ASSIGN YOUR ISSUE TO IT.

Hi @Roberta Patterson and welcome to the Community,

  • is the Epic in the same project as the Story?
  • Are you working with issue Level security?
  • Does the Workflow prohibit Edits in a specific status?
  • Can other users with the same project role edit the Epic?

If you are the Jira Admin - or have access to a person that is... there is a feature called "Permission helper" in the Administration where you can check permissions for a user for a specific issue. That can point to any missing permissions or other restrictions.
