How can I create different agile boards for different levels of a project?

I want a scheme that will let me organise different levels of requirement on different agile boards.

I want top level 'goals' to be at one level (kanban and PM's to manage them)

Epics created from 'goals' that are chosen

Those epics managed in a second board.

Finally a developer scrum system that takes the epics that are to be worked on and broken down to User stories and tasks.

How do I set about configuring JIRA projects and types to achieve this?


What I want is exactly what is described in this blog post

is there somewhere with more detail about what filters etc I need to make this work?

An idea could be to add a new field to your issues that can be used to create two different queries. With those two queries you would be able to create two different boards in JIRA Agile.

I hope it helps.
