It’s a suggestion from my end,

project A —— jira default project

Project B, Project C —— components in Project A

project D, Project E  —— Epics tagged with Components.



create a project A 

create a cascading field  in jira  with two levels and use it within your project.

Tnx dear Kagithala Babu Anvesh

Based on your soloution, Is it possible to have some reports based on  some mutual kpi between Project A and Subproject B?

Actualy,my Final goal is to gain some reports that Could have mutual kpi

By writing JQL queries you can get issues based on Project / components / stories for reporting / tracking.

Under D,E epics , you can create stories and give estimates to stories. Once you have estimates enabled. These can helpful in getting Sprint reports like Burndown, velocity and etc,


are you looking for the same kind of KPI’s ??

I just want to use task managemnt template without using agile boards.

Actually I have some mutual tasks in different projects and sub projects

I want to achieve reports based on mutual tasks that I mentioned

Jira does not have a project hierarchy, there are no sub-projects.

Some consider project components to be sub-projects, but they all work within a single project, so I'd not think of them that way.

What are you hoping to achieve from "sub-projects"?
