How to create multiple products and then create epics / stories under each product?

In our company, the product portfolio consists of multiple products. 


Ideally, I would like to create the following structure in Jira:

  1. Product A
    1. Epic A1
      1. Story A1-01
      2. Story A1-02
    2. Epic A2
      1. Story A2-01
      2. Story A2-02


Any suggestions?

Hi @Leon Kotovich and welcome to the community!

This is only possible under the following conditions:

  • Jira Software Premium - Premium licensing comes with Advanced Roadmaps which enables establishing a custom hierarchy above the Epic
  • Marketplace App - There are marketplace apps such as Structure which enable a logical linking leveraging issue types.  Administrators will create custom link types and the app can create a hierarchy based upon the link type structure.

Hi @Leon Kotovich

welcome to the community! If I may recommend another Marketplace App, this would be easy to do with the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira.

JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields, much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. It also comes with a number of advanced features, including the support for (configurable) issue hierarchies - either based on Jira's built-in parent/child relationships, based on issue links, or any combination of these. With these, the view you're looking for could be built in just a couple of clicks.

This is how this looks in action:


As you can see above, you can conveniently work on your issues straight in JXL, but also trigger various operations in Jira, or export your issues in just one click. You can also combine issue hierarchies with JXL's other advanced features, such as issue grouping by any issue field(s), conditional formatting, or inline issue creation.

As Mark said correctly, there's various apps in the Atlassian Marketplace that can help with this. You may already know that you can trial any app for free for 1 month, and depending on the size of your size, it may be free forever. So if an app is an option for your, perhaps try a few and see which works best for you.

Any questions just let me know,

Hi @Leon Kotovich, as @Mark Segall has mentioned, there a several ways to accomplish this. My recommendation is Structure by Tempo. I have no association with Tempo, I'm just a happy customer.  Here are a couple of links which give some details on how we've implemented a deeper issue hierarchy with Structure:

Hi @Leon Kotovich 

Welcome to the community !!

You can use Jira Issue Links to create your own hierarchy at any level and you would need a custom solution to view this hierarchy.

If you are fine with a mktplace app to visualize the hierarchy based on your issue links and also your std jira hierarchy in the same view, you can try out our add-on
