Which add-on creates the 'style' 'jira_gh_epic_story'?

I am migrating our Jira Db from OnDemand to our own server ... and I must restore a particular project b/c Jira was already implemented on our server before the new team decided to use OnDemand, then changed their minds. :(

I'm using the instructions at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Restoring+a+Project+from+Backup

But I'm getting validation error I can't figure out how to solve:

Issue Link Type

The Issue Link Type 'Epic-Story Link' has style 'jira_gh_epic_story' in the backup, but has no style in the current system.
I added the JIRA Agile add-on to get the Epic and Story issue types. I manually added an Epic-Story Link type. But I hve no option to give it a 'style'. Does that come with some add-on? Or ... how do I add the style it wants?

While I didn't find the exact answer to this question, editing the XML file to eliminate the style and rezipping worked.

If the entities.xml file is too big (5GB in our case) and you can't find a way to open it, you can solve this by doing an update in the database:

update issuelinktype set pstyle='jira_gh_epic_story' where linkname='Epic-Story Link'

Tested on JIRA 6.4.11
