Structure with Initiative, Epic and Story hierarchy

I am a Structure newbie.  I've gone through posts trying to figure this out but I am having a great deal of trouble pinpointing a solution.

In my JIRA project, I have created Initiatives.  Each Initiative has either

  • multiple Epics which have Stories nested under them OR
  • individual stories nested under them if they don't warrant Epics


Trying to figure out how to show via Structure the hierarchy similar to below and I am coming up short. 

Initiative 1

---- Epic 1

----------Story 1

----------Story 2

---- Epic 2

----------Story 1

----------Story 2

Initiative 2

---- Epic 1

----------Story 1

----------Story 2

---- Story 1

---- Story 2


The closest I can get is just at the Epic -> Story level using JQL:

issueFunction in issuesInEpics("priority = Critical and (status = Open or status = 'In Progress')")

Any suggestions?

Hi Jeffrey,

This should be pretty simple.

1. Automation+>Insert>JQL query. The JQL should contain only initiatives

2. Then Automation+>Extend by>Linked issues - the link between Initiative and Epic

3. Automation+>Extend by>Stories under epics

This appears to have worked!  Thank you so much for the quick response and help!!

Also, I am trying to do this dynamically - so that I don't have to manually add in the ID like below
