I'm trying to use Jira(free version) on my browser. Not sure why, but when I try to create an issue, in this case an epic, it doesn't have a name field for me to enter. Attaching a screenshot of what I see.Screenshot 2024-02-28 at 1.51.53 PM.png

Hello @Tarun Narasimha Varma Muppalla 

Welcome to the Atlassian community!

Are you referring to the field specifically for Epic type issues called "Epic Name"? If so, that field has been discontinued in Jira Cloud. It is no longer a required field and by default is no longer shown on Epic issue screens.

This change is described in this article:
