Allow apps to create and retrieve links between epics and stories via API in next-gen project

Currently, there’s no way to get the reference of epics and sub-issues (e.g stories). This exists in the Classic projects as an Epic Link custom field containing Epic Key. It would be great to have this feature as this allow vendors form the relationship between epics and it’s sub-issues.

Use Cases:

  1. When an app is subscribed to a webhook via the descriptor, there’s no way to see which epic the story is linked to
  2. When an app’s feature is to create diagram for epics and sub-issues, there’s no way to form it in next-gen projects
