I have a project that is not an Agile project. However, I want to be able to add existing stories to epics. I can't seem to find a way to do this.
There are no less than 3 "3-dot" icons in my UI - none of which have the option to "add/change epic"
The first - is at the backlog level and includes options for the board, or creating a new board
The second - is at the item level (where I expected to find it) and includes options to add flags, log work, attach checklists, move, clone, etc.
The last - is displayed just below the item summary and only includes the option "Temp"
I'll fully admit that I'm a Jira noob - I've used other backlog/story management systems and find Jira a little frustrating and non-sensical at times.
The "Epic Link" is in the side-by-side details view but it's hidden under "show more" and a scroll to the bottom of the page.
I'm all for progressive disclosure or hiding advanced options unless they are needed - but attaching a Story to an Epic seems fundamental.
I added previously created issues to a newly created epic by -
1. Open Backlog
2. Filter all the issues to be added
3. Drag one issue on the Epic in the left hand side Epic Window.
4. You will be able to see a green dashed highlight on the epic. Drop the Issue there.
Issue will be added to that Epic.
