Adding a Parent Link to an EPIC issue

Hi

I have added another hierarchy (called "Initiative") and have followed the steps by adding the initiative issue type to my board and have also added it at the Level 1 hierarchy level above Epic in the Hierarchy organization screen.   I now need to add a Parent Link field to the screen that Epics use which will allow me to set the Epic as a child of the Initiative.  Does anyone have specific instructions for adding Parent Link field? 

Thanks very much

Kind Regards

Carolyn

Hi @Carolyn Barbierato 

Parent Link field is created automatically, please follow the below

  • Go to your Project Settings > Screens
  • Under the Epic issue type, click to add a field to the screen. Depending on if you've separated your Issue type screen scheme
  • Search for the Parent Link field and add it
  • Navigate to the Issue view and search for the Initiative under the Parent Link to associate it.

Hi Prince

That worked perfectly, thank you very much for your response.

Kind Regards

I have done all of the above steps and when I look at my parent link drop down it contains initiatves from other projects and portfolio features from other projects but none of my initiatives - is there a setting somewhere that I have missed?

Hi,

I have the same problem!, did you manage to solve it?

Hi Alex, 

we were trialling premium and someone else picked up the roadmap assesment so I can't help i'm afraid - we didn't go ahead with the purchase or I would go a look so apologies

Hi,
how can be added the Parent Link field to an Epic for Software Projects?

Not sure if this helps anyone but I was able to link the Epic to a Parent only after adding the Issue Type to the "advanced roadmaps" hierarchy.

The confusing bit for me was that I wasn't intending to use this parent linking for "advanced roadmaps" and so even thou the setting was located in "Advanced Roadmaps", this change affected the normal JIRA issue structure too.

Location of the Hierarchy is here:

https://[your-sub-domain].atlassian.net/secure/PortfolioHierarchy.jspa

NOTE: remember to change: [your-sub-domain] to whatever your subdomain for JIRA cloud.

You're right, @jono_tt. Layers above the Epic are added to Jira with Advanced Roadmaps (which comes only with Jira Cloud Premium and Enterprise, or Jira Data Center) -OR- a number of Atlassian Marketplace apps.  It's not a built-in Jira feature.

Congrats on making it work 👍🏻
