How could I to define the four-layer structure level in the project?

I see that Jira Software only has levels of Epic, Story/Issue and Sub-task. but I need four levels in my subject. So how could I do for this?

Hi, @yundong_li. As @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ says you'll need an app for that. However, I am pretty sure Advanced Roadmaps (from Atlassian) is not available for Jira Server.

So, you'll need an app from the Atlassian Marketplace. 

@Anna-SoftwarePlant is right, too.  BigPicture is one of the apps that added the capability to Jira. But there are others you may wish to consider (including my company's product, Structure for Jira). 

To find the solution that's right for you may want to try this marketplace search:

That search zeros-in on what you are trying to do pretty well -- though not perfectly.

Best of luck to you,


Yes, sorry about that, I forget it's limited now.

I spend most of my time on systems that already had it before the licencing changes, DC (where it's part of the package now) or Cloud, where you get it if you are a premium subscriber.

Hi @yundong_li,

Although @Dave Rosenlund _ALM Works_ is 100% accurate in saying that Advanced Roadmaps is no longer available for Jira Server, I'm always concerned that people often think of J"ira Server" to mean "self hosted Jira on-premise".... so Advanced Roadmaps is still available as an on-premise offering as it is now bundled with Jira Data Center. So upgrading to Data Center is always an option to consider alongside selecting an application from the Marketplace - both are equally valid options.

It's a minor point but worth making in case you weren't aware of the nuance.

You'll need an app to do that.

Advanced Roadmaps can add layers above Epic, themes and initiatives.  Jira Align goes further, allowing you to go right the way up to the very top layer of scaled agile frameworks.  3rd party apps like Big Picture can also help with higher layers.

If, however, you want to mess within Epic/Issue/sub-task, look to the Structure app.  It does not truly change the Epic/Issue/Sub-task hierarchy under the hood, but it does a very good job of making it look like there are more layers for your people.

Hi @yundong_li

In BigPicture/BigGantt, you can automatically create a no-limited number of WBS levels. Task Structure can be created based on both build-in task attributes (e.g., Epic link, Component, Version, Sprint) as well as Jira links.
