Epic JQL showing open stories

Deb I'm New Here Mar 09, 2021

I need to easily move open stories from one epic to another with a bulk change. Is there an easy way to do this? Thank you!

Hi @Deb , 


yes you can do this, here are the steps : 

  1. Go to the Search and look for your stories
  2. Still on the search screen, click on the three dots on the upper right side and select "Bulk change all xxx issues"
  3. Confirm the issues to move
  4. Select "Edit issues"
  5. Find. the "Epic Link" field and type the name of the new Epic
  6. Click next and confirm


This wat you'll be able to bulk edit the issues and change the Epic Link (that's the reference to your Epic) for these issues.

Here's the Atlassian documentation on Bulk move :


Let me know if this helps,
