Can issues be transferred to a group?

I imported my issues from Bitbucket. I outsource much of our work to an agency and the group nesting for this agency looks something like this:

  • My Company Group
    • Agency Admin Group
      • Agency Developers Group

My imported issues for the project are manageable at the “My Company Group” scope but are not inherited by the agency groups. My hunch is that I need to transfer these issues to “Agency Developer Group” but do not see that option.

Also, in general, being new to GitLab I fear that I am missing something and that my setup may not align with how GitLab expects my setup to be configured when it comes to having groups that work is being outsourced to.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
