I have an epic ticket DSTRA-71 and a story DSTRA-110 linked to it. However on ticket DSTRA-110, the epic link shows up as "unlabelled-DSTRA-71" . Why does it say unlabelled? The link works and it doesn't look like anything is wrong with the epic.
I've seen this when:
I just made a brand new scrum project with all the defaults for everything. created an epic. No epic name field. created a task from this epic. now the task shows 'unlabelled-CAP-1" as the epic.
This is the most asinine default setup i've ever seen behind Rally CA Agile Central. Now i have to pore through pages and pages of confusing documentation to figure out how to make a custom field for epic name?? how does atlassian make such a BASIC thing so terrible by default???
yes ive tried that.
There was no epic name nor summary field, even though i assigned/activated them everywhere i could find (configure screens, fields, issues, etc etc etc and all the defaults)
Now that ive gone in this screen and clicked the 'configure fields' button in the top right, i was able to add those fields so now theyre showing on issues (i dont understand why despite the enormous amount of different configuration options, this is not only not the default BUT i had to create and open a specific issue to get these fields to show....)=
However, now i cant get epic link to show when i'm using the 'all issues' view...how do i do that?
I too changed a task to an epic using the drop-down and was faced with this issue.
I didn't have the permissions necessary to modify project settings to use some of the other suggested work-arounds. I was able to get around it by turning off the New Issue View under Profile and Settings -> Personal Settings -> Jira labs. After turning the new issue view off, I could navigate to the issue, click the Edit button and edit the epic name at the top of the edit view.
I'm a new Jira administrator and I've tried/looked for all of these ideas/solutions above
Have you tried this?
1. Open the Epic
2. Click Edit
There should be two fields on top of the screen, the Epic Name and Summary. To remove the "unlabelled", just add an Epic Name
I'm a fairly tech-savvy person and Jira has been making me lose sleep since I started working in it a few weeks ago.
TFS was SO MUCH EASIER THAN this! I'm half tempted to talk to my management about switching at this point.
Changed a Task to an Epic using the simple drop-down - ended up with this issue - the summary was populated with the Issue Title, but the 'title' field for the Epic was blank...
Appears to be a platform bug, maybe because the input title was too long, it didn't create a Title in the Epic? It was fixable, but annoying.
Has anyone seen a Bug Issue created for this yet?
