Use EPIC of next-gen project in 'normal' project


For my project I have 2 project

- a next-gen project for high level roadmap

- a 'normal' scrum project with improvements/new feature/sub tasks


When I open a issue in my scrum project, it seems that I cannot select an epic of my next-gen project as epic. Is this correct?

I can add the issue of my scrum project as link on the next-gen epic, but this is not what I want.

Hello @Dieter_Lauwers 

Possible duplicate

Please see the following answer from Petterson Goncalves (Atlassian)

Hello Robin,

Unfortunately, you can not link issues that are not from a next-gen project with Epics from a next-gen project because this kind of Epics does not have an Epic-name. That's why it is being displayed as unlabelled.

I agree with you that it can cause some confusion. If it's intended that classic issues should not link to Next-gen Epics, it should not even display as an option in the Epic Link field.

That's why we opened a bug to fix this behavior and allow the link between both issue-types:

Provide clearer message when users link Story from non next-gen project with Epic of next-gen project
