modify the JIRA Agile Story screen

I modified the out of the box New Feature to be part of the Agile Scrum Issue Type Scheme and it is now linked to an Epic. How do I change the Story Issue type to link to the New Feaure instead of an Epic

You can do that using the Script Runner Plugin (

so in the post-function of the create issue, just connect your script. HerE's an exemple of a script who will create an issue of issuetype X with a Epic Link:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericValue
import com.atlassian.jira.config.SubTaskManager
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.project.component.ProjectComponent
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.manager.OptionsManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.config.FieldConfig
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.label.LabelManager
Summary = ["Prototype - Blocking Scripted Event", "Prototype - Blocking Animation" ]
IssuetypeID = "3"
components = ["Cinema","FX"]
ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
CustomFieldManager cfManager = componentManager.getCustomFieldManager()
ProjectManager projectMgr = ComponentManager.getInstance().getProjectManager()
SubTaskManager subTaskManager = componentManager.getSubTaskManager()
IssueLinkManager linkMgr = ComponentManager.getInstance().getIssueLinkManager()
OptionsManager optionsManager = ComponentManager.getComponentInstanceOfType(OptionsManager.class)
IssueLinkTypeManager issueLinkTypeManager = ComponentManager.getComponentInstanceOfType(IssueLinkTypeManager.class)
def component
def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()
def issueFactory = componentManager.getIssueFactory()
def issueManager = componentManager.getIssueManager()
def indexManager = componentManager.getIndexManager()
def watcherManager = ComponentAccessor.getWatcherManager()
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()
CustomField cfMilestone = cfManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Milestone")
CustomField cfUbi = cfManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Ubi")
Issue parentissue = issue;
LabelManager labelManager = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(LabelManager)
Project project = parentissue.getProjectObject()
reporter = componentManager.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser()
currentUser = componentManager.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getUser()
i = 0
Summary.each {String summary ->
        normalIssue = issueFactory.getIssue()
        MutableIssue newIssue = normalIssue as MutableIssue
        newIssue.issueTypeId = IssuetypeID
        component = componentManager.getProjectComponentManager().findByComponentName(project.getId(),components[i])
        newIssue.summary = parentissue.summary + " | " + summary
        newIssue.reporter = reporter
        newIssue.setCustomFieldValue(cfUbi, parentissue.getCustomFieldValue(cfUbi))
        newIssue.setCustomFieldValue(cfMilestone, parentissue.getCustomFieldValue(cfMilestone))
        //Map<String, Object> newIssueParams = ["issue": newIssue] as Map<String, Object>
        Params = ["issue": newIssue]
        GenericValue newIssueDone = issueManager.createIssue(currentUser, Params)
        labelManager.addLabel(user,, 'cinema_task', false)
        breakintoLinkType = null
        Collection cloneIssueLinkTypes = issueLinkTypeManager.getIssueLinkTypesByName("Epic-Story Link")
        for (Iterator iterator = cloneIssueLinkTypes.iterator(); iterator.hasNext();) {
            IssueLinkType issueLinkType = (IssueLinkType);
            if (issueLinkType.getName() == "Epic-Story Link") {
                breakintoLinkType = issueLinkType.getId();
        linkMgr.createIssueLink(,, breakintoLinkType, 0, currentUser)
    catch (exception)
    i = i + 1
