Question: Why does moving an Epic from one project to another cause Greenhopper to lose it's history/progress info for that Epic?
Here's what I did:
To reassociate the issues in the ALIB board locate the issues in the list of all issues and drag them back into the Epic (in Plan mode). Unfortunately this is really manual right now. The problem you are describing was filed as a Bug (which you can see here): https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-7732?jql=project%20%3D%20GHS%20AND%20text%20~%20%22Epic%20move%22
I trust that resolution on the bug will provide a much longer term suitable solution. If you visit the issue in our public Bug Tracker you can comment and provide additional details to the dev team.
I suspect that it probably has to do with the issue key change when moving from one project to another. (e.g. your ALIB-XXX epic changed to EPICS-XXX and then changed back to ALIB-XXX).
When you are in plan mode on your 'ALIB' agile board do the stories associated with the 'dCatalog' epic show up as associated to that Epic?
I think this answers your question, but let me know if not:
Definitely looking forward to your advice on this! :)
I've tested this out with my own board and I'm getting the same results. I think the issue is that even though the stories associated with the 'dCatalog' EPIC show as associated to the EPIC in the Issue Details the stories are still in the old project while the EPIC is in a new project.
Try bulk moving all your stories into the "EPICS" project and they will show back up in the EPIC details on the sprint board.
If you'd like to keep the stories in the 'ALIB' project (not move them) you can try reassociating them to the 'dCatalog' epic on the 'ALIB' board in plan mode.
I hope this helps.
We would like to keep the Stories in the ALIB project and the 'dCatalog' Epic in the EPICS-XXX project (only epics in the EPICS-XXX project). How would I reassociate the stories with the 'dCatalog' epic on the 'ALIB' board? I don't see a clear/straightforward way to do this.
BTW, one of the funny things I noticed is that when I click "Issues without epics" on the 'ALIB' board it doesn't show the issues that were unassociated from the 'dCatalog' epic. :-)
