How to Use Epics in Jira?

To use Epics in Jira, the following information is needed:

  • Epic Name: It is a short identifier for the epic. It is used as a label on issues belonging to the given epic.

  • Epic Summary: It is observed whenever Jira will be displaying the epic. 

If you wish to create an epic from a new issue, here are steps to follow:

  • Click on the “Create” icon situated on the global navigation bar at the screen’s top

  • Select the particular Epic for the issue type

In addition to this, there are also more ways to create an epic. For example, you can create an epic in the backlog, or on the roadmap.
