Using Confiforms to create JIRA issue, getting error message when adding Epic Link

I have created a Confiforms form in Confluence to create a JIRA issue (task) based on the information input into the form. Everything works except the Epic Link. Based on all the Googling I have done I don't see any reason why this is failing, so I'm hoping someone in this community can help. I am receiving this error message: java.lang.RuntimeException: Internal Server Error

JIRA v6.4.8 with

JIRA Agile v6.7.16

Confluence 5.8.17
