Creation of Themes above Epics in premium

Hi all, I can see there's an ability to create issues that sit above the Epics in advanced roadmaps (which I've done)


What I'm confused about is the mapping upwards. To create a "theme" ticket type I've had to create it as a "Base" level ticket - can I create is as a second Epic type so it displays like epics or can I only have a single epic type ticket?


How do I ensure correct linking up? I've seen that there are some changes around epic-link and parent-link: What do I need to do with that to ensure the hierarchy of Theme>Epic>Story>Task>Sub-task persists and works?

Hi @Erin Davies and welcome to the community!

When it comes down to it, Epics are special and there's no way to replicate their behavior even with those higher hierarchy issue types like Theme in your case. 

As for linking...

  • Below the Epic - Link using Epic Link
  • Epic and above - Link using Parent Link
