We are using JIRA Cloud. I want to be able to create EPICS, Features, and Stories.
1. Can this be done with JIRA Cloud
2. If so how do you do it- Please provide steps
3. If no, what JIRA product would allow for this
3. Need to track if the project is ahead of schedule, on schedule, or behind schedule
Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
You will need to be on a Premium subscription to do this natively.
Jira only has two layers at the core - the story level and sub-tasks. Jira Software adds Epics above story.
Premium has "Advanced Roadmaps" that enable you to create more layers above Epic. So if you have that, you can:
You could also look for apps that can do this. The ones that spring to mind are Hierarchy for Jira (of course I'm going to plug that, I work for Adaptavist), and Structure, but it is probably worth a look through the marketplace for others.
just to offer another Marketplace recommendation, this would also be easy to do using 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 support for (configurable) issue hierarchies. These issue hierarchies can be based on Jira's built-in parent/child relationships (like epic/story, or story/sub-task, or anything you configured in Advanced Roadmaps), and/or based on issue links. With this, you can model virtually any structure of issues, e.g. like so:
You can have as many issue hierarchy definitions as you want, and also combine issue hierarchies with JXL's other advanced features, such as issue grouping by any issue field(s), sum-ups, or conditional formatting.
Any questions just let me know,
Are your project types company managed or team-managed? The first things is to create a project in Jira Software.
If you are in team managed you'll have ability to configure issue types that consist of epics, stories, tasks, etc. You can also create new issue type for example: features (as you mentioned).
Here is a good link of how you can create these issue types in a team-managed project: https://support.atlassian.com/jira-software-cloud/docs/set-up-issue-types-in-team-managed-projects/
Here is another good link of understanding how you can create hierarchy and lovely visuals with epics, stories and tasks: https://www.atlassian.com/agile/tutorials/epics
If you enable the timeline on your projects to help you manage a "schedule" as such in weeks,months etc.

I'm afraid this is broadly incorrect as an answer to the question. The flaws are:
The first step in creating a hierarchy is to, well, create the hierarchy. Not creating a project. When you create (or update) a project, it will start using the hierarchy you have defined.
In both team and company managed projects, yes, you have Epics (by default for most Software project templates), but adding "feature" just adds another issue type at the level of story. It does not give you any hierarchy.
