Could you please advise, weather plug-in is needed for "Initiatives" usage in JIRA? If yes, which plug-in you could advise?
I want to group Epics and see expandable roadmap - Initiatives, Epics, Stories...
You will need AR for Jira to create the issue hierarchy first. Once the hierarchy configuration is established, then those other add-ons (i.e.BigPicture/Jira Align) come into play.
Didn't know that BigPicture can works without AR for Jira. AR for Jira is now a out of the box component if your Jira cloud subscription is at the Premium level (no additional add-on or costs)
Here is the reference for AR for Jira (this is being used by many Jira cloud/server based envs) - https://support.atlassian.com/jira-software-cloud/docs/get-started-with-advanced-roadmaps/
You can use issue links to create your own hierarchy at any level.
To visualize the hierarchy based on the issue links, we have created an add-on to track the progress at each level,
Disclaimer: I work for RVS, the vendor for this app, and I am one of the developers in the team
You will need Advanced Roadmap for Jira to establish custom issue hierarchy setup. This add-on is a part of Jira Software Cloud (Premium subscription) free.
Hope this helps.

Hi @Māra Kārkliņa ,
You can use Advanced Roadmaps and create a new level of hierarchy for initiatives as described here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/advancedroadmapsserver0329/configuring-initiatives-and-other-hierarchy-levels-1021218664.html#:~:text=Adding%20the%20initiative%20level%20to%20a%20project&text=not%20created%20yet.-,In%20Jira%20Software%2C%20click%20or%20%3E%20Issues.,%2C%20click%20Settings%20%3E%20Hierarchy%20configuration.
There are other plugins and tools, e.g. 'Structure for Jira':
And even 'Jira Align', although Jira Align may be "too much" depending of your use case (It provides a lot of functionalities for program and portfolio management, not just a new level of hierarchy)
