Lineage of issues and children

Hi Everyone!
We have 5 layers in Jira spanning to something similar to below

  1. Themes
  2. Initiatives
  3. features
  4. epics
  5. stories
  6. Controls/sub tasks

I was wondering if there is a way at all to set up a page that shows the "lineage" of all the items trickling down from Themes all the way to the Controls / Sub tasks.
Potentially I can click on a theme and see what initiatives are in a theme.
I can see what features are part of which initiative and so on.

We are talking of 10s of themes with 100s initatives and thousands of epics etc.

Has anyone done anything like this before?

Thank you all so much!

Hi @Matt Fracassini

Try using the advanced roadmap and add it as a macro in confluence, if you have the premium subscription you can set the hierarchies as you described above.

Thanks Fabian, that does work but it doesn't let you see them in a nice manner. Just gives you a massive gant chart of junk....
I wish it was just showing the card and items portion on there instead of the whole shabam of roadmaps
