How do I make an existing issue a child in Agile?

We often have tickets (Stories, Tasks) that we need to retroactively add to an Epic in Agile.

I can link it (blocked by, etc.) but those don't show as Child items and hence don't work on the Agile board.

Anyone know how to do this?

This page describes the feature that was released and all the ways to manipulate the parent child relationship from the issue itself https://support.atlassian.com/jira-core-cloud/docs/create-an-issue-and-a-sub-task/

Thanks

Sorry for the delayed reply on this. But for completion's sake (and if others stumble across this thread in future), this page describes the feature that was released and all the ways to manipulate the parent child relationship from the issue itself https://support.atlassian.com/jira-core-cloud/docs/create-an-issue-and-a-sub-task/

From the Board, you can open the context menu (three dots icon) on an issue badge and select "Add to Epic/Change Epic".

From the Backlog, you can select multiple issues and do the same thing.

Hope that helps :)

Thanks - that works but is, unfortunately, tedious vs. being able to do it from within the Epic, etc.

Hopefully there is another mechanism on the way

Meanwhile there is another workaround: Group the board by epics and drag the issue to the epic you like to assign it to.

Hi Paul,

This is a use-case we know we need to cater for, and we're currently working on providing an easy way to view and manipulate this relationship from within the context of a child item (story, task etc.) so stay tuned 🙂

You can also command-click on the board to select multiple items, then click the three dots to add to epic. Or do a few batch items. 

Any update on this Daniel ?

I am looking to create child deliverables and sub-tasks for a next-gen Jira project that I have setup.

@dank , any news on this? Would be helpful to know. Thanks
