I created an extra hierarchy level above the issue type that is usually named Epic (the purple lightning bolt symbol). However the issues of the new type end up in the Backlog (like User Stories). I would like the new Issue type to behave similarly to Epics and end up in the Epic list in stead of the Backlog. Is this possible?
Hi @Stein Faes and welcome to the community,
Unfortunately you can't. Jira allows only one Epic issue type. Read here as well https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-questions/Is-it-possible-to-create-a-custom-epic-issue-type/qaq-p/1165029
Nope, not that I know of. You can try to change its name, which I know you can but I don't know the implications to be honest.
