What is the best way to Move a Task or Story from one epic to another?

Marlon M I'm New Here Nov 14, 2017

I am new to JIRA and started creating Stories, assuming I would be able to create a hierarchy of Feature -> Story -> Task.

But reading the board, i realise there is no distinction between Story and Task when it comes to hierarchy.

So now i want to setup my Features as Epics and then then create Stories and Sub tasks.

Need assistance in the best way to move existing Stories/Tasks to specific Epics

I found a way to link them. 

The Jira documentation lists you some ways how you can link existing issues to epics. On a Scrum board, I personally drag most of the times simply the issues onto an epic in order to assign them.
