Can someone let me know hoe can I add another level as 'features' under epics in Jira.
I created another issue type as 'feature' , but stories and features are at the same level and I am unable to create hierarchy as Project > Epics> Features > Story.
You do not. Jira Software's hierarchy is Epic -> Story - Sub-task, and that is fixed.
Projects are not relevant to the hierarchy because Epics are expected to go across projects.
If you add Advanced Roadmaps or other scaling apps, you can extend that upwards, putting layers above Epic. If you do that, then you can rename Epic to Feature, to make the naming match your scheme.
However, you can also use the Structure app to build any hierarchy you want, including layers that appear to be between Jira's Epic and Story levels.
Hello @Medha Kapoor
Welcome to the community, you are using Advanced Roadmas, right? Hierarchy levels can only be adjusted in A. Roadmaps, it's called "initiative hierarchy level"
Here is the documentation/how to achieve it.
JXL for Jira would be another option for you. It allows configuring any hierarchy of issue types, both based on Jira's "native" parent-child relationships (Epic/Story, Story/Subtask) and based on so-called issue links.
(It also gives you a full-fledged table/spreadsheet view on your issues that comes with all features you're familiar with from Excel, Google Sheets, etc; inline editing, inline issue creation, fast sorting and filtering, and much more.)
This is how e.g. a 5-level hierarchy would look in action:

(Disclaimer: I work on JXL :))
Hope this helps,
Welcome to the community !!
You can use issue links to create your own hierarchy above and below Epics or infact at any level.
To visualize the hierarchy based on the issue links, we have created an app to track the progress at each level,
