Using Advanced Roadmaps for SaFe

As we know, we can't create a hierarchy between an Epic and the standard issue types or between a standard issues type and a sub-task.

I am wondering what the workaround is to use a Safe Hierarchy such as: Initiative > Epic > Feature > Story > Task

How are people getting around this limitation?

Hi @Juan Du Toit

While this isn't possible at the moment, we're currently working on functionality which would enable the practicing of SAFe in Jira. You can read a bit more about it in our announcement blog: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-articles/Upcoming-Rename-epics-in-your-company-managed-projects/ba-p/1874726

Essentially, once this is rolled out, you'll be able to rename your "Epic" to "Feature", then create a new "Epic" issue type on the hierarchy level above (and "Initiative" above that) to implement a SAFe hierarchy.

While this functionality isn't available yet, we're expecting to roll it out in Q4 2023 - you can keep an eye on progress at the blog post I linked above, as well as on our public roadmap: https://www.atlassian.com/wac/roadmap/cloud/flexible-naming-of-epics??&search=epic&p=c0c344ce-98

I can't speak much to the workarounds that people are using at the moment unfortunately, so I'll leave our other community members to jump in there!

Let me know if there's anything I can help clarify.

Cheers,

Daniel
