Advanced Roadmaps - hierarchy based on what info

Sascha Hülß April 25, 2024

Hello everyone,

my questions refer to 

Portfolio for Jira - 9.12.5

I understand that Epic Link is used to display issues nested in Epics in my plan, Sub-task Link is used to display Sub-tasks nested in their respective parent.

Now i create my own level above the Epic and assign MyIssuetype to it. 

This ends up in a list of MyIssuetypes with no issues nested in them and below a list of 'issues without parent' being the epics and their fringes.

Could some wise person point me to the point, where i can define the relation info between the MyIssuetype-Level and the Epic-Level?

Any help here would be highly appreciated!


Additionally - to spare me any further attempts - it looks like there are no means to add a level between Epic and linked-via-Epic-link-issues and the Sub-task level:

e.g. Epic - Story - TheLevelINeed - Sub-task

Thanks again,

Hello @Sascha Hülß ! Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

There is no way to add levels between Standard Issue Types and Subtask Issue Types.  Plans/Advanced Roadmaps/Portfolio for Jira only allows you to add issue hierarchy levels above Epic.

In Advanced Roadmaps, you would define the Epics that MyIssueType contains using a Parent/Child relationship.

Hi @Robert Wen_ReleaseTEAM_ ,

thanks a lot for the swift response!

I'm afraid it is not clear to me what 'using a Parent/Child relationship' refers to.

Wild guess:

Creating a link 'Parent/Child' - has child - has parent?

Thanks in advance again!
