Copy Epic

This page provides information how to create templates for epics.

Issue Templates for Jira app allows you to copy and link stories to an epic without any additional configuration. The app rewrites links automatically, so that they are pointing to newly created stories/issues instead of templates.

In Create dialogs, you can select different issue type than the one set in the template. However, in case of using epic templates, you should always select an epic issue type. Thanks to that, the primary template and its stories will be linked properly.

We don’t recommend you to add Epic Link field to the scope. If it’s added to the Template’s fields, the app will copy epic links as they are. As a result, epic links will point to the template instead of new issues. Support for Epic link in scope was added for that particular use case.
