Can I link an Epic to an Portfolio Epic in Jira?


I created a Portfolio Epic because the topic covers more than one PI. Now I want to link the Epics with the Portfolio Epic. Ist this possible? I can't find a solution to do this.

Parent Link doesn't work - epic link doesn't exist. Or I can't find it.

It sounds like you need to take this step so that your Portfolio Epic is available in the Parent Link field:


Add custom hierarchy levels to your Advanced Roadmaps plan:
Select> Products.

  1. In the menu on the left, select Advanced Roadmaps hierarchy configuration.
  2. Select or remove hierarchy levels you want to include in your plans.
  3. Select Save changes.

Thank your very much - the feedback I got is that due to restrictions in our systems we can't use this solution. But then I learned that we use initiatives instead of portfolio epics and then I have parent links. problem solved :-) 

Thanks again for your help. 

Great to hear! You're very welcome!
