I have a Task that exists under an Epic within a project. Now within the same project, I need to move the Task to another Epic within the same project.
How do I do this?
As it turns out with hunting around on the internet. YOu can drag and drop taskes from one epic to another from the spring view. Whilst this may be a nice/great option. If you are not in a sprint/backlog view, and you are inside a task and release, i want to reassign to x, you cant. There is NO OPTION to do this. Only to chnage type of task or move project. The old documentation/correct answers in forum is misleading. Take it down or correct it and save our time please.
In a Next-Gen project (from the Board or Roadmap), select the task and in the edit panel, choose the More button (...) and choose Change parent. Then search for the EPIC to which you want to reassign the task.
It would be nice if the Roadmap let you drag and drop the task to where you wanted it, but that's how it is. Same with reordering the tasks: You have to edit the Epic and then you can re-arrange them. Not terribly "next gen". On the Board, you can drag and drop to rearrange tasks; just not on the Roadmap.
For those not using a SCRUM based board but are using the new 'next-gen' layout, you can 'Change Parent' on a task that is assigned to an epic to re-assign to another epic that exits.
Alas, you can not set to no epic (yet).
You can also as mentioned above 'Move' the issue to the same project as a task, story, bug, etc... and it will remove all links at that time including an epic parent. (only happens in a 'next-gen' project, classic copies the epic link :( )
I have attached the 2 menu options here for clarity.
Change Epic option on Issue
Move Issue to sample project
