You'll find a box called Advanced features. This lets you enter custom code for specific manual configurations. To sync Jira Epics as parent tasks, just copy this text exactly:

"syncEpicsAsParentTasks": true

Then, paste it into the Advanced features box. You should get something that looks like this:

After that, you just need to save your flow and close it. Now, your Jira Epics will be considered as parent tasks, and all linked tasks, issues, and bugs will be synced as subtasks.
