How to change epic for multiple issues?

I filtered the issues that I wanted and went into the bulk change edit panel however there was no field in there to change or assign a parent / epic. Is that not possible currently?

If not what's the most efficient way of quickly changing the epic for many tasks (or more specifically adding an epic to many related tasks)

I don't have permissions to bulk edit issues, but what I did to add multiple issues to an epic was to select multiple issues on the backlog view and simply drag them to the left epic pane on to the epic I wanted to assign. 

Worked like a charm!

@David Biagini or @Cody Wikman   can you please elaborate how did you select the issues from the backlog and then added them to an epic

@Sama Mohamed  When viewing the Backlog click to show the Epic Panel. When the epics are visible you can simply drag your tasks to the epics to assign them. You can do this with multiple tasks if they are highlighted. Multiple tasks may be selected by holding shift or control/cmd.2022-07-29 06.30.06.gif
