We have epics setup on a seperate project and it is mainly for Product Backlog. We also have a seperate project setup at team level. Can epics at team level be linked to the Product Backlog Epics? Because we don't want to link each individual stories at the team level to the epics in Product Backlog instead just link the epics at team level to the epics at Product Backlog level.

Despite the extra functionality in Greenhopper Epics are "normal JIRA issues". Therefore you can link them any way you want

What I meant was can we establish link from an epic (project of low level requirements which contain a group of user stories) to an epic (another project but with higher level of requirements)? If it does work, then we don't have to link each user story at the low level to the high level epic.
