How do I get an epic's issues to move when I move the epic to a new project?

When I move an epic to a new project the issues do not move to the new project.  The issues remain in the original project view.   How do I get the epic's issues to move to the new project when I move the epic?

Use this JQL 

key = JRA-1000 OR "Epic Link" = JRA-1000

and then use the Bulk edit capability to move them. You'll have to specify the project and issue type for each of the issues you move, plus for any subtasks involved, but it's a bit faster than moving them separately.

Do you mean you move an epic to a new project?

Your question is unclear, can you pls explain clearly. btw, you cannot move an entire project anyway, so iam sure there is some mis-communication. Pilar

Sorry for the miscommunication. I do want to move an epic to a different project and have the associated issues move with it to the new project. When I have moved an epic the issues continue to display in the original project and not in the new project. I can move the epic then move the issues separately to have them show in the new project but I was hoping there was a way to move all of it in one step. I hope this is clearer.

Hello Will,

If you are moving an epic, the 'Move Issue' wizard will not move the issues in the epic. The epic and the issues in the epic will still be linked to each other, but the issues in the epic will remain in the original project. You will need to move them separately.
