I made selecting an Epic Link on new issues mandatory. Now when I go to make a new Issue of type Epic, it fails as issue type EPIC cannot have an EPIC assigned to it. I created a Catch 22 as they say. Previously I have gone into the Issue Fields Configuration and removed the requirement for an epic link on new issues, made my new Epics, then assigned the requirement again. Today I cannot remove the requirement. I am stuck with the Epics we have and am unable to make new ones. HELP or hints gratefully received to get out of this conundrum!!
The field is ALWAYS locked under Custom Fields. You make fields required in the Field Configuration.
A long term fix would be to make sure your Stories and Epics use different Field Configurations, and ensure that the Stories have the Epic Link field required and the Epics don't.
