We have set up Jira hierarchy to capture a theme in an Epic, and specific Projects/topics in a User Story which is then broken down to Specific Tasks and we use Sub tasks to capture the different phases/steps in a project.
Whenever I try to pull things into a plan in Advanced roadmap my User stories are not linked to the Epic and my tasks are not linked to the User Story. I have ensured that all the issue types pulled are linked (Parent-Child relationship) but all the Stories, Tasks and sub tasks are coming up as issues without parent. Can someone please help me.
Hello @Ayo Ayoola
Can you provide some screen images of an issue an Epic with a Story, and a Story with a Subtask?
To achieve the parent/child relationship the issues have to be "linked" in a specific way. For instance a story has a unique field for specifying its parent Epic - the relationship is not created with the generic issue linking functionality.
In JIRA natively there are three basic levels of issues:
JIRA recognizes parent/child relationships as follows: Epics can be parents to Stories/Tasks/Bugs, and Stories/Tasks/Bugs can be parents to Sub-tasks. Stories/Tasks/Bugs cannot be parents to each other. This is not done through the generic issue links, but rather through specific functionality. Stories/Tasks/Bugs have a field called Epic Link that identifies their parent Epic. That is what is missing here; your Story and Task issues do not have their Epic Link field set to net-1045. When the Epic Link field is set in the Story/Task/Bug, then when you are looking at the Epic details you will see a section labeled "Issues in this epic".
Project managers know this problem: A “mountain of work” lays in front of you, and you don’t know how and where to tackle them. Different to-dos lie ahead, but just one task after the other can be ha...
