Create Initative


QQ:  In the Delivery Screen, there is the "Create Epic" option that allows you to create epics, stories or tasks.  Can/Will this be extensible to allow for creating other issue types (i.e. like Create Initiative) to help bridge the planning process with tools like advanced roadmaps?

We are currently using Aha! for some planning purposes, but a limitation for us with that tool is that it only syncs with Jira at the epic and story level.  We work around it, but having the capability to add the additional initiative layer above would provide a natural split for when we assign stories to different teams (i.e. story per team) for larger projects.

We do have advanced roadmaps, but I hadn't selected a project that had initiative configured (my bad) .  Once I do, it works.   


I noticed from the roadmap for Product Discover that Hierarchy's are coming in the future, so it will be exciting to see how we can get our Product Manager's integrated into product discovery to clean up on product mgmt process.  Will wait on the announcement of that feature being added

Hi Ken

Do you have Advanced Roadmaps currently? As you can create the higher 'Initiative' level from the Delivery screen if you do.

See below example. Note: we call them SAFe Epics, not Initiatives
