Spent an hour trying to figure this out. Please help!
I want a Story to be able to add the field "Epic Name" when creating it.
I've checked every configuration and it properly shows Epic Name field on the list (add, edit, delete, default).
Also checked every Issue Type, Issue Type Scheme, Screen, Screen Scheme, Issue Type Screen Theme.
When I try to create a Story and "where's my field", the error returned is:
"The field 'Epic Name' is not configured in scope of the project 'xyz' and issue type 'Story'
To solve this issue, go to 'Epic Name' configuration page and add it to the scope"
After clicking this it still does not work and nothing to do on this page ..../secure/admin/ConfigureCustomField!default.jspa?customFieldId=10008
I don't recall ever making a custom field "Epic Name", assume it should be default in Jira.
The Epic Name is only defined for the Epic issuetype. If you want a Story to show the Epic's name in which it is included, add the Epic Link field to the screens.
