Our issue hierarchy uses Epics, Features, User Stories, & Test Cases. The current Agile add-on seems to forego Features and instead focuses on Epics and User Stories. It would be a tremendous benefit to us if we could add a Features panel and have the cards include the Feature Name (much like the current Epic Name field).
We're closely following the Scaled Agile Framework model so there is a distinct different between Epics, Features, User Stories, etc. I'm uploading a screenshot of our planning board. You'll see the Versions and Epics panels on the left and the cards on the right. Notice the cards have labels for both the Version and the Epic associated with each issue. We'd like to expand this capability to include Features as well as Versions and Epics (and we'd like a Features panel on the left).
We did resolve this issue however it was done by customizing the jira-agile (greenhopper) add-on, which I do not recommend as a long-term strategy. I’m hoping Atlassian comes up with a solution because we cannot sustain the custom solution we implemented past the product lifecycle for the agile version we used.
