Within a Single Project, Can I link Issues in One Version or Epic to Another Version or Epic ?

Can Issues in one Version or Epic be linked to another Version or Epic within the same Project ?

Using JIRA Cloud.

Yes linking issues in JIRA is simple regardless of issue type (if you are referring to the simple "link issue" feature) which offers a minimal functionality of showing a link between tickets and a link type. Do you have another feature/functionality in mind for linking issues other than this?

Thanks Gab.

Not really. 

Just need to link a bug to different "Name" versions of the same product .

Will probably create a different Epic for each "Name" version.

Create a bug for one Epic and then link it to the other Epics.

Most bugs in one product apply to all the others as they are all essentially the same product.


Issues can be linked to multiple versions, using the 'Affects Version/s' field.

For example:

If you have a bug that occurs in both version 1.0 and version 2.0 of your product, you can set both versions in the 'Affects Version/s' field.

If you have fixed (or plan to fix) the bug in version 3.0, you can set the 'Fix Version/s' field to show that.

Here's an example from Atlassian's public issue tracker which shows how they use versions: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-62071
