Hi @Niharika ,

You will need to create a new issue type. And add it to a newly created project. Lastly, add it to your Advanced Roadmap plans.

Here is a document with some instructions:

I hope that helps.

What's not intuitive is that a few custom fields need to be added to your issue types:

Adding the Parent Link field is the magic that allows you to associate Epics with Initiatives.
