Representing Story Map Activities as Jira Components

Edited
Teagan Marketplace Partner Jul 27, 2017

 

If you are looking to capture the 'Activity' level of the Story Map as explained in Jeff Patton's original blog on the practice, we recommend you use the Jira Component field. 

 

Jeff originally shared this hierarchy:

In Jira, the nomenclature of the hierarchy differs. We like to think about it in these terms:

 

  • Activity = Jira Component 
  • Task = Jira Epic
  • Sub-tasks or task details = Jira Story/Task/Bug 

 

Setting up Jira Components 

To set up the Component level on a Story Map to represent an Activity you can use Quick Filters. You'll need a Project Administrator to create the Components first. 

Here is the Quick Filter configuration for Jeff's Film Finder example:

Once configured, you'll see those Quick Filters across the top of the Story Map:

Create and Allocate Epics to Components 

When creating an Epic, set a component:

Filter by Quick Filter

Finally, enable the 'Apply quick filters' option under the Views dropdown and then enable a Quick Filter:
