This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Working with epics
When I create an issue, I have both an Epic Link field and a Parent Link field. What's the difference and how do you know which one to use?
I'm not sure where the "parent link" might be coming from. Could you explain that one a little more?
However, it does sound like it's a simple link to another issue, one that defines some simple relationship between two issues (e.g AB-123 blocks CD-456). Epics are a bit more functional than simple links, as the Epics gather data about everything held in them and appear on boards so things can be added to them easily, and so-on.
