Epic menu item not displayed in trial period

Describe your question in as much detail as possible:

  • I try to evaluate the Epics feature using a free account in the trial period => in my understanding I should have the gold features temporarily

What are you seeing, and how does it differ from what you expect to see?

  • I don’t see the Epic menu item on the left (within the git project)
  • I have access to paid features like weights, service desk…

Consider including screenshots, error messages, and/or other helpful visuals

What version are you on (Hint: /help) ? and are you using self-managed or gitlab.com?

  • Saas

What troubleshooting steps have you already taken? Can you link to any docs or other resources so we know where you have been?

  • I tried to find documentation steps on how to setup the epics feature and didn’t find something.
  • I created a new account for testing, activated the trial and had the same issue
  • checked https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/group/epics/

Continuing the discussion from Epic menu item not displayed in trial period:

I learned now: Epics assignment option is visible

  • when I create an issue within a group - not a repo
  • edit the issue => in the propeerties the Epic assignment is visible
  • it tells me it: Upgrad plan - seems like it’s not contained in the trial period
