      The following Workaround is only available until Mar 31, 2021 noting:

      From Mar 31, 2021, we'll be moving all users on the old issue view in Jira Cloud products (Jira Software, Jira Service Management, Jira Core) to the new issue view — which means you won't be able to switch back to the old view anymore. For key dates, what's next, and more details, check out our official announcement.

      Disable the New issue view by navigating to your user icon in the upper right of the screen, and selecting "Personal settings" then scroll down to the "Atlassian Labs" section and deselect the green selector slider for the new issue view:

      With the new issue view disabled you will be able to use the quick create option from the issues in the epic panel
