Will there be a way to link more than one EPIC to an Atlas Project?

Monty Bhatia July 26, 2023

We modelled JIRA where there is a project reflecting each business unit.

Each business unit may come together and work on one project together; while doing their own work in their own project space.

Is there a way to link more than one epic to an atlas project?  Of course we wouldnt sync project or epic titles as a result.

This allows Atlas to reference > 1 epic, and each epic to reference the one atlas project (and corresponding goals).

I know that we can add related links, but I'm wondering if there is a way to create one atlas project to reflect multiple epics.  This would be a great way to provide overall project updates across multiple teams.

Thanks.

Hi, @Monty Bhatia , thanks for your feedback. We're currently looking into supporting adding multiple epics to an Atlas project but we don't quite have a timeframe on when we'll actively work on it. We hear feedback on this often and as soon as we begin work on this, we'll let you know.

Thank you @Niraj Patil hoping to see it implemented.

Thanks for asking the question @Monty Bhatia , and thanks for the response on this @Niraj Patil  !  We really would like to have this (1 to many) functionality to get best value out of how we'd like to use Atlas.

+1 for multiple epics support!

Yes, +1.

This is definitely an issue for Atlas adoption.  I fail to see what it really offers us over epics themselves.

Epics have a description, comments, a list of tickets, and even a progress meter.  Why do we need Atlas if projects can't bridge multiple epics.

I was really surprised that this wasn't done in the initial implementation. The concept of the tool makes a lot of sense, but this limitation breaks that concept by forcing either a very specific Jira usage and company operational workflow, or by making me not bother linking up projects themselves to the Jira side of things. At least on the Jira side we can link higher level issue types that "live" above Epics, even if those are primarily used for organizational purposes and not actual tasking.

Is there a jira.atlassian.com issue we can follow for this?

I am also stuck on being able to leverage this tool without tracking against multiple Epics. I would love to hear more on where this feature sits on the Atlas roadmap.

Loved the idea of Atlas and got really excited about using it, until I saw I can only link 1 Epic. This simply wouldn't work for us as a project is made up of multiple Epics.  I'm hoping this enhancement will follow soon!

@Niraj Patil any updates on this one? It is still a massive blocker from what could otherwise be a useful tool for us to use more widely.

I agree. There must be a way to link more than 1 epic. We experimented with "Initiative" type in Jira, but that didn't spinoff quite well.

Only 1 epic is the reason I can no longer use Atlas. - Sorry, this is not an answer but I only seem to be able to edit and not delete.

Atlas needs to be able to connect to a Project or an Epic.  Not just an Epic.  :(
