Epic Name is not appearing in Epic Issue Type

I have installed JIRA Agile add-on . But when i create a Epic , i cant able to see the epic name in the list of availabe fields . I cant even configure the Custom fields (Epic color,Epic Name,Epic Link, Epic Theme) that resulted after installing the JIRA Agile add-on . All i can do with this fields is , i can change the screens in which the fields need to appear . Any help on this scenario ?? 

PS : I am using the trial version of JIRA Agile add-on

You will need to explicitly add the field Epic Name to the screen which confirms to Epic issue type and your project.

Go to issue type screen scheme for your project, check the screen scheme which is associated with epic issue type, then  go to that screen scheme and check the screens that are associated for create, edit and view issues. Add epicname to all those three screens. Your field will appear.







This is just so complicated.

Hi @Rahul Aich [Nagra],

I have everything setup and all schemes and associations are made and linked to my project, but the Epic Name field is still not visible on my screen. When doing the "find my field" thing, it states that the field is not in the scope of the project, but opening the field configurations the field is linked to my screen.

Is there anything else other then above that will help resolve this?




Hi Nico

I'm having the same problem as you had. were you able to solve it?

I followed the steps in this link and it worked for sometime but I guess after re-indexing the Epic Name is not visible again on a custom Epic type issue's screen.


Okay. It is not re-indexing. I tested it on my staging.

I am also having this issue.   Are there any other steps to try?  Thanks.
