How to I add an existing story to an Epic without using the Agile board?

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.

Check if you have the "epic link" field in the "edit" screen for the issue - that will let you name the epic you want the story to be part of from standard issue-edit operations.

Didn't even notice the field there.  Works perfectly.  Thank you.

I was also able to do this by selecting and dragging the Story over to the EPIC on the left, creating that relationship. (JIRA v7.3.8)

I started a new project and I don't have the same controls and can't find the Epics on the left. Is there a way to make them appear?
