Epics - Assign an owner

Can you have an assignee for an epic? or only issues and tasks?

Hi @Louise Godwin !

Yes, you can! If you can't see the assignee field while creating an epic, then you should add it on the create screen. The easiest way is

  • Click create
  • Choose epic
  • Click "configure fields" on the top right corner
  • Click "Where's my field"
    01.where is.png
  • Start writing "assignee"
    02.assignee.png
  • Scroll down until you find the "field screen" section and click on the blue highlighted text
    03.find screen.png
  • Scroll down, type "assignee" and click enter
    04.add it on screen.png
  • That should do the trick!

Now go back and create a new epic. You should see the field on the bottom.

Let me know if that worked!

 

Cheers,
Alex

Glad to be of assistance!
We've all been through the newbie status concerning the Jira admin. :)
I wouldn't worry though! Practice and practice! :D

Cheers,
