Since is not possible to add the Epic Link directly using JIRA REST API, we will use GH REST API (you can do a reverse engineering to track all the REST requests happening on the board using any JavaScript console). So the REST request to add Epic Link is on this form:


Note the above request should be done using PUT request, here is a complete example using curl:

curl --user username:password -d '{"ignoreEpics":true,"issueKeys":["{issue-key1}","{issue-key2}"..etc]}' -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://localhost:8080/rest/greenhopper/1.0/epics/{epic-key}/add
