Setting up Project Management Structure using Components

Hey Guys


I am trying to set up a project Management structure using components or some other aspect of Jira where I can group issues and subtasks but am unable to find where I can set this flow up, are there any ideas you have on this?

Hi Matt,

The components field could certainly be used to help organize issues within Jira.  I suspect that if you cannot find the components to setup here, you are either in a team managed project, or your account is not an administrator of that particular project.

We are tracking a request to add that field to team-managed project types (formerly known as next-gen) over in JSWCLOUD-17601.  More general information about the differences between these project types can be found in What are team-managed and company-managed projects.

That said, for company-managed projects, the component field is customizable to any project administrator.  There are steps on how you can do this over in Organize work with components.

I hope that helps explain how you can do this. 
Let me know if you have any questions.


Thanks Andy!

Hey @Andy Heinzer - this is very useful, thanks.  Can I include an issue's (task/sub-task) onto a Board?  Similar to how Epics/parents work in Software projects?
