A good way to align with SAFe going forward is to use the Framework Map functionality in Jira Align as a base level-setting and alignment with the desired framework.
@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_- I interpreted the "validate" request as asking if there is a way to verify that a client has set up Jira Align terminology, value streams (operational and developmental), work levels, etc. in alignment with SAFe and lean agile recommendations.
