I'm working in the discovery project. My colleagues submit ideas all the time and the product team triages them. Sometimes, we will get ideas that will eventually be the epic and other times we get ideas that are really only singular story tickets. We need to track these though.
I see the option to link and we have "is child of" and "is parent of" but it doesn't make any visual changes to the list of idea tickets. Is there a way to make an idea subordinate to another? Indenting the child issue on the list page?
Hi @Abby Kiesling ,
You can use the epic->story/task dependency to reflect that hierarchy. You can also check some addons in the Atlassian Marketplace, like Structure: https://wiki.almworks.com/documentation/structure/latest/data-center-and-server/getting-started-with-structure-32223517.html
Hi @Abby Kiesling - If this is purely to provide a visual representation of hierarchical ideas in an outline, Jira is not designed for this. In its simplest form, Jira has a designed hierarchy of Epic >> Story/Task/Bug >> Sub-Task. Epics can present children in a containerized form and sub-tasks can appear as children of Stories/Tasks/Bugs.
There is also the concept of Advanced Roadmaps which will expand the issue type-based hierarchy to go higher than the Epic so that you can show objective level requirements all the way down to sub-task.
For displaying ideas in some type of hierarchy, you'll either need to consider adjusting how they map to issue types or consider a marketplace app.
