Thank you

Unfortunately, out of the box Jira can not do it. You can try to use the plugin Automation for Jira

 

And create a Manual trigger for creating an issue with the field, what you need copy form another issue. Also, you can write a script for this, with Power Script or ScriptRunner plugins, but I don’t know how this script will look, and, I think it is hard solution for small issue)

Hi @Igor Kosoy

To make an Epic the parent of an issue in Jira Cloud Classic:

  1. Locate the story you want to add to the Epic
  2. Press Edit and locate the field "Epic Link"
  3. Search for the relevant Epic and select it
  4. Press Update

You can do this in bulk also via issue search, using the bulk change tools. 

If this is Jira Cloud Next-Gen:

  1. Locate the story you want to add to the Epic
  2. In the top-right, select the options icon (3 dots)
  3. Choose "Add Parent"
  4. Locate the relevant Epic and select it
  5. Press Submit

You can also do this in bulk from the Next-Gen board - multi-select issues using Shift / Ctrl + Click and follow the same directions on the board instead.

Thank you.  This is no what I was asking.  I was looking for the way to auto add labels from the Epic to child stories.
