Epic name won't be update in story/task issue after I rename it.

As the title, I have some tasks linked to an epic, and after I renamed the epic, the "epic link" field in story/task doesn't change as well, is it possible to sync epic name after changes?

Hi @Davis Lin , 

Welcome to the community! 

An Epic has a summary and an Epic name (after creation, found on the right column of the issue). 

The Epic in a linked issue is linked by it's epic name, not the summary. Are you sure you changed the Epic name and not the summary?

Oh, I changed the epic summary, not the epic name, and now it works.

Thanks so much!
