Hello @Raju PSR 

Welcome to the community!!

Using the native functionality, custom issue types (Feature, in this case) can be created. These issue types can then be used in a hierarchy as per the use case.

As Story is a default issue type in Jira, this hierarchy would need to be maintained manually. Else, you can create another custom issue type of sub-task category and name it like 'User Story'.

Please accept the answer if this helps.

Thank for for the response.

Can you give more details how to do it manually? 

When I am creating the story can I select the field for value feature ?

Hello @Raju PSR 

You can either define a new relationship or use a custom field to store the value of the Features in the Story.

That seems like a lot of work. Because we have Advanced Roadmaps, we created an issue type called Initiative and used the Epic as the Feature.

can map the custom field with "Issue Link"

It's called Parent Link. That ties it to the Initiative, for us.

Hi @Raju PSR 

You can use issue links to create your own hierarchy above and below Epics.

To visualize the hierarchy based on the issue links, we have created an app to track the progress at each level,

Agile Tools - Epic Tree, Links Tree and Time in Status 

Key features of Links Hierarchy:

  • Hierarchy upto 10 levels deep
  • Progress % on "remaining estimate" or "original estimates"
  • Edit Issue summary, time estimates, story points and assignee on the tree with real time updates in the progress
  • Rolled up percentage completion at all levels
  • Ability to add/remove the columns on the report
