Adding an issue type above Epic

Team Varolio June 5, 2023

Hey People, anyone knows how do i add an issue type "Feature" that is above Epic so i can add epics under "Feature" and user stories under "Epics"? i want that when i add issue to my roadmap it will be "Feature" by default and i could add all the layers beloew it - epics, and then stories/bugs/tasks.  It's extreamly difficult to understand and i cant find any solution.
