Have you added the issues into an Epic? It is a default functionality and the Epics will appear on the view as soon as you add the issues into an Epic.

The Epics will appear as Jobin points out.  But you could also add epic-link if you want to duplicate it


I'd guess you're board filters out the Epics.   The Epic needs to be shown on the board for the epic-link to display.
