is it possible to add a Hierarchy like Epic - Feature - Story (standard Issuetypes) - Sub-Task?

Because I am not able to push a new level with only "Feature" below the "Epic" 2024-03-11_12-12-52.png

Hi @armin_rothe 

In Jira Data Center the best way to achieve an "Epic - Feature - Story" hierarchy is through the flexible terminology settings.

First, use the "Terminology" page under your Administration settings to rename "Epic" to "Feature". 

Then, you can create a new Issue Type called "Epic" and use the hierarchy configuration settings to put it the level above your newly renamed "Feature" level.

Hope this helps!

Hi @armin_rothe

you can only add additional levels above the epic level. Kindly see this thread for possible ways forward.
