In eazyBI why are Epics under Projects hierarchically?

I've created an eazyBI report which summarizes time logged by epic (rows) and user (columns.)

I've noticed that some epics are repeated and have found that each repetition represents the stories under that epic from different projects.

I'm wondering why epics fall under projects in the hierarchy when it's possible for an epic to have stories from different projects?  Would it not make more sense for projects to be grouped by epics?

Is there some way I can have all stories from different projects grouped under the same epic in my reports where I use the "Issue" dimension?

Hi Matt,

 

In this case, you could try importing "Epic Link" custom field as separate dimension (via eazyBI import settings) and then use it instead of "Issue" epic hierarchy.

After importing this field, you should be able to find it under "Agile" dimensions
