How do you turn on option to associate an Epic to multiple Programs (ARTs)?


I had seen the "Additional Programs" field used in Epics before, and also noticed it is mentioned in Help. Help seems to imply that you can enable this field for specific Portfolios. I couldn't find this anywhere in Administration -> (Settings) Platform

How do you enable this field?

This is enabled by a Feature Toggle that can be set by a member of the Jira Align Support, TAM, or Solution Architect team.  Please reach out directly to them or create a support ticket to have it enabled.

Ah, that was what I was forgetting - thank you, @Derek Huether

Once that is turned on, you'll see a '+' sign to the right of the Programs option in your Epic.

Click the '+' and you'll get a new field for adding other programs.

One thing to remember: if the different programs have different PI cadences, you need to include both PIs in the Epic's Program Increment field. In the example above, if the Mobile program and the Align Implementation program have different PIs, they both have to be included.
