hierarchy set up for different uses

Does anyone know of a way to have a hierarchy set up so you can have epics within themes which sit within an initiative but also so they can sit in the initiative without being in a theme



>>Theme or Epic

>>> Epic or other issues 

>>>>other issues

Hi @Louise Wharton and welcome to the community!

The issue hierarchy for advanced roadmaps is rigid so you cannot have issue types appear at multiple levels.  This is because best practice is that your levels above the epic typically tie to business objectives based upon top-down strategy (e.g. company OKR, departmental OKR).  With this mindset, an epic would never skip a level.

If this is not how your company is organized, you may want to consider a marketplace app like structure.

Hi @Louise Wharton,

just adding to Mark's answer: There's actually a number of hierarchy-focused apps on the Marketplace that allow more freedom in how you set up your issue hierarchies. Since Jira's built-in parent-child relationships are somewhat limiting, they often rely on issue links (or a combination of built-in relationships and issue links) to model these hierarchies. If a Marketplace app is an option to you, I'd suggest trying out a few - you can trial every app for free for 1 month - and see which one solves your use cases best.
