custom e-mail templates - how to get epic name


I need to customize e-mail templates and do it with use of official documentation available here:

It works very well with custom fields. But I need to add epicName and epicLink to all notifications sent for tasks. How can i do it?

The EpicLink is a customfield. You should be able to get the customfield ID from the HTML. If you are using Chrome:

  1. Open an issue that has the EpicLink populated
  2. right click on the epicName
  3. Select Inspect
  4. In the html, you should see the DIV for the value
  5. get the customfield ID from the DIV, should be something like customfield_10001 or some other number.

From that ID you should be able to use the Rest API to get the name and I believe the link as well
