Hi Jira Community!
Starting in May 2023 and continuing through August, we'll be rolling out several updates to issue type hierarchy levels in Jira.
These updates will be released incrementally, meaning that some sites may see these changes earlier than others.
You'll soon have the ability to configure the names of your issue type hierarchy levels across Jira. To do this:
Select Settings > Issues > Issue type hierarchy.
Click the level name that you want to rename.
Edit the level name, and select Save changes.
Please note that these updated level names may appear throughout your Jira experience, including:
the Type column on the Issue Types settings page
autosuggestions for ‘hierarchyLevel’ JQL searches, and
REST API endpoints that return hierarchy levels names.
The Type column on the Issue Types settings page will be replaced with the Hierarchy Level column, which will display numerical values of the hierarchy level, e.g. -1, 0).
As announced in our earlier blog post, we’re allowing you to rename epics in your issue type hierarchy settings.
Changes you make to your epic level will be reflected throughout all company-managed projects in your site. For example, if you’ve renamed the epic level to Feature, your backlog will now contain a Feature panel, rather than the existing Epic panel.
Please note that the Epic Link field change described in our previous post is not part of this set of upcoming updates, but will be addressed soon.
If you have issues at hierarchy level 1, you will see an Add a child issue button in the issue view for all such issues, which replaces the Create subtask button.
To identify the impacted issue types, navigate to Settings > Issues > Issue type hierarchy and locate level 1. This change does not affect any other issue types.
The image below shows an example of the Add a child issue button:
We hope that these updates will enhance your Jira experience and provide more flexibility in managing your projects. Keep an eye out for these changes in the coming months. Thanks!
