Hi Rupa! 

You may review this article for a definition of most of those terms -

Our platform uses default terminology based on SAFe methodology for most work item levels. Check out their glossary here -

Glossary has very few definitions like (Epics, BV, Vision, Themes, PI, Feature). 

I am looking for difference between Themes, Epics, Capabilities , Features and Programs? Which filed is used to track different projects which are under same program in jira align?
