Can I create Initiatives in Jira Standard?

My company finally migrated to Jira Cloud, we are on Premium for one week more and then we switch to Standard. I have two questions:

  • Can we create a custom parent of Epics called 'Initiative' in Jira Standard?
  • What kind of reports do we get with Jira Standard for the custom 'Initiative' type similar to Epics?

Hello @Adam Poncy ! Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Staying on Premium allows you to use Advanced Roadmaps which allows you to extend the standard Jira issue hierarchy (Epic - Story - Subtask) to include Initiatives.  

For Jira Standard, you're going to have to resort to a Marketplace app like Structure for Jira, which allows you to create custom hierarchies.

Thank you for responding quickly!
