Changes from Deprecation of 'Epic-Link'

Hi, I want to get some clarity on the announcement of the deprecation of ‘epic-link’ here.

  1. Will the current REST API v3 stop supporting any searches which access the ‘epic-link’ custom field?
  2. Will JQL searches containing ‘epic-link’ return errors or is ‘epic-link’ still a part of JQL?


This has been a long-running change. For the full context of what changes to expect in the APIs see: Deprecation of the Epic Link, Parent Link and other related fields in REST APIs and webhooks

While the timing of the changes did change over time, to my knowledge, all of those changes are complete now. More or less, I think you can confirm by searching the changelogs for “epic link”.
