Yes! You can add issues from other repos in your epic, as long as the other repos are connected to your Waffle board.

In this example, "tifthedog/summerplans" is the main repository on the Waffle board and "tifthedog/blockparty" is a connected repo.

You'll need to use a cross-repo reference (read more on cross-repo references) to add an issue to an epic that's in another repo. A cross-repo reference will look like this:

  • parent of username/repo#123
  • parent to username/repo#123
  • parent username/repo#123

In this example, the epic (#65) is created in the "tifthedog/summerplans" repo and the child issue is in the "tifthedog/blockparty" repo.
