What is an epic issue in Jira?
An epic is a large body of work that can be broken down into a number of smaller stories, or sometimes called “Issues” in Jira. Epics often encompass multiple teams, on multiple projects, and can even be tracked on multiple boards. Epics are almost always delivered over a set of sprints.
How do you add an issue to an epic?
What you can do is the following:
- Go to the Backlog for your project.
- On the top of the backlog page, select the desired epic.
- At this point the backlog section only shows the issues belonging to the epic and clicking on “add new issue” at the bottom of the section automatically adds the new created issues to the epic.
