How do I add the epic link as a field to my story and bug issue types?

On a future type and it does not show up as an option

@Chris Finck 

I assume you mean that you can't add an Epic Link field on new tickets?

If this is the case, you need to:

  1. Have Jira Software installed
  2. Have admin access to the project and/or system
  3. Add the Epic Link field to the create screen of the issue type in question in your project

Im on cloud though.

so web browser.

Hey Chris, 

Jira is a web app so all of the changes will be done through a web browser regardless of your deployment (cloud vs server).  That link I posted will guide you through how to add fields to the Create Screen used to create the Story and Defect issue types in your project. 

Hope this helps!
