When I click on Add Epic from inside an Issue a larger overflow pops up for a split second and then it defaults to View All Epic. If I click on View All Epic I get a modal w/ an empty select and no valid options. I am new to JIRA so I may be missing something but I poked around a while and couldn't find where else I might create a new Epic. Thoughts?
The "Add Epic" option on a Story is to add an existing parent to that issue - rather than creating one.
To create an Epic you can just press the create button (the "+" button on the left-hand navigation bar), selecting your project and the issue type Epic.
Or - you can go to your project, select "Roadmap" and on the left-hand side of the roadmap is an option to "Create Epic" directly on it.
