How to define Task as child of Story AND parent of Sub-Task?

I'm in Advanced Roadmaps hierarchy levels and I cannot modify current hierarchy...


Current hierarchy: 

  • Epic > Story > Sub-Task
  • I can only add new levels ABOVE Epic, but not between those three levels.


Expected hierarchy:

  • Epic > Story > Task > Sub-Task

but isn't it a common need of PM to have this hierarchy: theme>Epic > Story > Task > Sub-Task?

Unfortunately it is not possible to configure additional hierarchy levels between Epic, Story and Sub-Task. This is due to the history of Advanced Roadmaps which was formerly known as Portfolio for Jira and was a marketplace application for Jira.

Advanced Roadmaps introduces a new hierarchy relationship called "Parent Link" that can be used to create additional hierarchy levels, but only above Epic. The relationship between Epic and Story levels is controlled by the "Epic Link" relationship.

It is possible to rename hierarchy levels but the Epic issue can only be used at the Epic hierarchy level.



Hi Jira team, We are also trying to do the same thing in JIRA, and have been stuck on this for some time. Some clarity around how to achieve this appropriately would be very helpful and greatly appreciated thanks.
