How to combine user stories from different EPIC under the same project for the sprint?

Hi All,

I have a API integration project (main project), under that i have created multiple EPICS based on API integration, Core changes, Payment Gateway integration etc. I wanted to pic user stories from different EPIC's under the same project to run the sprint?

Is it feasible? How it can be accomplished?

Can i group them based on Themes and run the sprint?

Any suggestions

You first create your sprint(s) from the Scrum Board, "Create Sprint" option.  Then you assign user stories to those sprints.  The Epic that a Story sits under is irrelevant to which sprint you assign the stories.

Thanks pete, let me cross check that... 

Hi Pete,

I got another question linked to my previous question, 

I'm working on a web development project, it has multiple dimensions to it. Supplier API integrations, Payment Gateway integration, Code Change (Frond & backend) and Vendor Fulfilment API integration which are projects on its own.

Is it ok to show each projects as EPIC's under one main project to keep track of each individual items. 

If so, how i can group the user stories for each sprint?

Is it a good idea to group the user stories based on each webpages or features?

Or it is best to write EPIC based on each Webpage or WebPage features and write the respective user stories under them?

Is there any repository which i can refer to realtime project EPICs & User Stories?

I'm not sure I understand your question.  You use Epics to group the Stories (based on Features or something similar).  Then you assign Stories to sprints to complete the work.  When all stories are complete under an Epic then you can complete that Epic.

Hi Pete,

If i have multiple API integration and also Front end & Back end core changes. I'm planning to create Epic for

Epic 1: API Integration

Epic 2: Front end & Back end core change + GUI changes

Based on the features, i'm planning to group User Stories from both the EPIC for sprint planning. Is this feasible. 

Yes - as I said before, the Epic is irrelevant, just assign the Stories to the sprints you want them in, it doesn't matter which Epic they sit under.
