How do we add a “Create Epic” button to Initiative issue page?
(“Initiative” is what we have called the Advanced Roadmaps level above Epic).
Context: Regular Epics have a button “Create child issue” which can create Tasks.
Advanced Roadmaps issues do not have such a button by default, which is inconvenient, so we would like to add one.
Hi @Matthew J
Welcome to the community!
Unfortunately "Create Epic” button within the Epic issue type screen doesn't natively exist in Jira, although I do agree that it would be convenient and nice to have.
There are other ways that you might consider (as a workaround):
I would prefer the Initiative's "Create Subtask" button be replaced with an "Add a Child issue" button (as in the Epic) where you could select the issue type. This would then allow faster Epic creation associated to the Initiative. It would be associated with the initiative it belonged with in the first place. Maybe there is a way to configure this?
