What is the proper way to link Portfolio Initiatives to JIRA Epics to maintain hierarchy chain

I have followed the instructions provided to add Initiative Issue type to both Portfolio and JIRA.  I have created 106 initiatives in JIRA and they are showing correctly in Portfolio etc.  When I link Epics to the Initiative they are not showing up as nested in portfolio at all.  Wondering if we are doing something wrong.  Where does the initiative link go?  1)Parent/Child linked issue? 2)Custom field exposed in JIRA Issue types for "Parent Link" 3)Somewhere else?  Please help so frustrated.

Hey Kristi,

The proper way to do this should be editing the "Parent Link" field on the Epics to the Initiatives.

Hope this helps,


Even if I added parent link, its still not showing correctly, it showing in portfolio as an Orphan, hre it is about Epics linked to initiative
