Example single project:
- Project lead creates EPICs and is assigned to them.
- User creates issue and links it to one of the EPICs.
- Issue is created without error message, but link to epic is missing.
- User can link/block his issue to other issues, regardless if he is assigned to it or the reporter of it
User can only link to EPIC if he is assigned to it, or is the reporter.
Even if the single user is granted the permission to link issues it is not possible.
How can users link to EPICs without granting them Admin rights or assign them to the epics (because multiple users work on issues which are linked to one EPIC of course...)
Do we have a solution for this issue?
My problem is similar to described - I cannot create issue from Epic: "Create issue in epic" button. It looks like JIRA attempting to resolve ticket Key instead of Epic Name, therefore error appears saying that "Epic with key ' SEO-1064 ' does not exist.". It reproduces for non-admin users.
But as workaround I'm able to create issue as usual - via Create button in header and manually set Epic name into Epic Link field.
Thanks for the screen shot - that is a big help. :-)
If you are using the Old Jira Issue View, which it looks like you are, there are two different screens for Create and Edit. Check the Edit screen to see if the field is there.
You can also try to temporarily switch to the New Jira Issue View and see if it is there.
Sure, the Epic link is also available in the edit view.
Try it yourself.. its only 5 Steps:
1. Create Project
2. Create Epic
3. Switch to user who is not admin, project lead, assignee or reporter of the Epic
4. Create issue in the same project and link to Epic
5. Issue is created without Epic link
The new issue view is only for Jira Cloud as it seems. We use Jira Sever.
