Hierarchy and Showing Program or Portfolio Epics

When I click on Hierarchy in Advanced Roadmaps/Portfolio, I received this result. The Epics have their parent under "Issue Links." Is this incorrect?  Why aren't the program epics showing up here?

Hi @Amy_Evans ,


To see your program epics in the plan, you'd need to make sure that the program epics are within your plan's issue sources. Just go to your plan configuration and hit "edit issue sources"

After that, to link the epics to the program epics, you can either:

1. Drag and drop epics to their parent in the plan's UI

2. Or expose the parent link field in the Jira issues screens for epics and assign the program epic.

Please let me know if the above helps. I'd be also happy to chat to learn more about your experience and feedback.

Feel free to schedule 30 minutes -


I am having trouble assigning feature epics to my program epics.

In the parent link field of my feature epic, only my portfolio epics show up, but I do have program epics created.

Do you know if there is a setting I might be missing?
