Want to create a multi-level hierarchy

I am looking to create a hierarchy for Epic->Story->Task->Sub-Task. Is that possible?

Sure. This will probably be enough to get you started:

Once again, thank you Adam. This will likely work for us, especially if we explore the Structure plugin.

Yes and no.

Epics, Stories and Tasks as far as JIRA is concerned are all parent level in the JIRA hierarchy. JIRA out of the box allows for a parent-->child level hierarchy, which typically is reflected something like this:

Story-->Sub-Task

Task-->Sub-Task

Defect-->Sub-Task

Epics in JIRA are at the parent level, but through the magic of labels can be reflected as higher in the hierarchy, even though under the hood they really aren't.

That's the no part.

The ALMWorks Structure plugin allows you to have multi-level hierarchy in JIRA, I don't think they limit the depth, and is probably worth investigating. It's commercial plugin and I have not used it much, but from what I've seen it looked promising. Perhaps someone else who has used it can comment more on their experience with it.

Hope that helps.

Thank you Adam. Can you please point me to any links that suggest how I can use Labels to implement this?
