creating stories under Epic


1 answer

Hello Venkat,

I assume you need some help with creating stories under Epics, so there we go! First, go to your Backlog page. Then in the Backlog, follow these steps.

  1.  Click the Agile link's down-arrow in the top navigation bar, then select your preferred board from the resulting dropdown menu.
  2. Click Backlog.
  3. If the Epic panel is not shown at the left of the screen, select Tools > Show Epic Panel.
  4. In the Epic panel, hover over the epic then click the triangle at the left of the epic name to display the epic details.
  5. Click Create issue/Story in epic at the bottom of the epic details in the Epic panel.


Hope this helps you out. If you want additional info, you may refer to this [link|]

There is no "create issue/story in epic" in the Epic details panel in the Backlog for my project. (I'm using hosted JIRA, so whatever version is active today.)

Same here - I can create a sub-task, but the option for Story is not there.
