Jira Portfolio - Cases where EPICs are not planned in a release


What if the EPICs are not planned in releases, but only the features and stories. There are multiple teams and dependencies, and the release is planned using the fixversion in JIRA. If we bring JIRA Portfolio, how will this help to do the planning considering that the Portfolio for JIRA does the planning at EPIC level, but we want to do this at feature and stories level

Thanks Earl for the response. Currently our issue hierarchy is that Epic->Features->Stories->Sub-task. I saw in JIRA Portfolio, it is Initiatives->Epic->Stories. So, if we bring JIRA Portfolio, how can we manage the existing hierarchy?
