Multi-level hierarchy on jira


We would like to incorporate a multi level hierarchy on JIRA agile

Theme -> Sub-Themes -> Children ( Epic ) -> Children ( Story ).

We are interested in monitoring the progress of themes, sub-themes and epics.

Is it possible out of box on jira-agile?

Any plugins which can help us in this?

I did a support ticket on this, and was referred to for responses to the request for deeper hierarchies of any kind.  The answer has been "no" for it being possible out of the box today, and it's not on the roadmap to do so.

I was referred to the Structure plug-in.  It does let you view deeper hierarchies, but managing / adjusting is not at all agile.

Hi Sal, could you elaborate on what isn't Agile about managing/adjusting?

You can try JIRA Portfolio. It will work the same way
