We support the following keywords to make an issue an epic: 

  • parent of
  • parent to
  • parent

All of the keywords must be followed by the issue's number. 

For example this will work:

  • parent of #33 

This will NOT work:

  • parent of 33


We support the following keywords to make an issue belong to an epic:

  • child of
  • child to
  • child

Like the parent issues, the child issues must have the issue number included in the wording like this:

  • child to #21
