Hello ladies and gentlemen,
I have a question about native Jira and creating more issue types in an expanded hierarchy. What I mean is, is it possible to create types above or below standard "Epic>Task>Subtask" issue types?
I haven't found the answer on forums or the Jira Software Cloud resources site.
Welcome to the Community!
Plain Jira only has issue -> Sub-task. Software adds the Epic layer. For more, you will need apps or premium subscriptions - Advanced Roadmaps adds initiatives and themes above Epic, and apps like Big Picture and Easy Agile make representations of more layers. Structure is an app designed to give you complete freedom in setting up a wider hierarchy!

Here's another app that you might like: JXL for Jira. It's a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view on your issues that allows configuring as many hierarchy levels as you want - either based on Jira's native parent-child relationships (as discussed by Nic before), or based on issue links between issues.
Here's how a 5 level hierarchy looks in JXL:
It's worth nothing that JXL can do way more than that. E.g. you can freely configure the table to match your needs, inline-edit your issues either individually or in bulk, perform quick sorting and filtering, and much more. More info at https://jxl.app. Disclaimer: I work on JXL :))
Hope this helps,

You can use issue links to create your own hierarchy above and below Epics or infact at any level.
To visualize the hierarchy based on the issue links, we have created an app to track the progress at each level,
