Agile Cards does not see the Epic Link field

We are using the JIRA Agile plugin which comes with Epic Link field (short name for an Epic) on an Epic issue type. The Agile Cards plugin does not see this field - it is missing from the list of possible fields.

We want to print this field when we print an Epic.

Can we count on a fix?

Hi Anna, 

As of version 2.3.2 Agile Cards plugin handles JIRA Agile custom fields. There should be available as "Epic Name". Could you please recheck if there is such a field on the list? If it's missing, could you please let me know what are your JIRA, Agile Cards and JIRA Agile versions?

Sorry for inconvenience.

Best Regards,

Mikołaj Żyromski, Spartez

Epic Name and Epic Link are different fields. Epic Link appears on Epic. Epic Name appears on issue which is linked to Epic, usually a Story. Epic Name is supported by the plugin but Epic Link not.


Sorry for such a delayed response.

On my JIRA instance it's quite opposite, i.e. Epic Name appears on Epic:


while Epic Link is shown on an issue that's linked to the Epic:


Both fields can be selected for printing in Agile Cards configuration: Epic Name and Epic (which is in fact an alias for Epic Link which may be confusing) and both are visible on regular issue printout:
Unfortunately none of them is printed on epic card though and I assume it's the problem for you? Please confirm.
Best Regards,

Yup, that's the problem.

I'll investigate it. Please see for reference.

Hi again. The fix is ready. We're going to release new Agile Cards version in a few days, so please stay tuned.
