Hi @cheluvambike_bn_claysol_com ,

you can't merge epics. The only thing you can do is move all issues from one epic to the other and then close the epic without issues.

Thanks for your Answer Thomas!!

You're welcome, @cheluvambike_bn_claysol_com 

Brilliant how when you google all your problems with Jira it says "Solved" but i have yet to come to a question where there was actually a solution to a problem. Its not a solution to say "its not there" there thats an answer.

Hi @cheluvambike_bn_claysol_com ,


By default, merging issues is not available in Jira. You have to use the app. Please try our  Issue Merger for Jira. It allows you merge not only Epics, but every issue type which you need. We also support linked issues.

In case of any questions, don't hesitate to contact us via our Customer Portal or book a demo session via Calendly. 🖥 




Hi @cheluvambike_bn_claysol_com

With our cloud app Merge Agent for Jira you can merge Epics and all other issues that have already been created.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with us at if you have questions.


Quick question; Does it merge the Dev Tasks and the Linked issues too?

Thank you in advance!

Welcome to the community, @zakynthinou !

Currently it's only possible to merge linked issues. But we really like the idea of merging also the tasks and subtasks within the epic. I already started a discussion with the dev team and it seems to be possible to implement this.

Can you get in touch with our support to share more information about your use case with us?

You can also try the full version of Merge Agent for Jira for free for 30 days. That might help to get a better understanding how the improved Epic Merge should behave in order to fulfill your requirements.

Thank you for your feedback, @zakynthinou !
