I try to create two linked issues using the “parent” field via Jira REST API. This works fine if the parent issue has the preinstalled issue type called “Epic” and if the child has the preinstalled issue type “Story”.
But if I try to make a different issue type to be the parent, I am getting this error: Given parent issue does not belong to appropriate hierarchy.
Alright, of course I know there is an issue hirarchy which connects Epics and Stories. But how can I use the parent field for other issue types? or
how can I know if a certain issue type can be used as parent or not before getting this error?
Or is the preinstalled Epic type the only one to be used as parent?
