Child issues not showing in parent's detail view


I have created a hierarchy with 2 levels above epic, we want to use them both in normal issue view and in advanced roadmaps.


2021-01-25 20_01_07-Hierarchy Levels - Advanced Roadmaps - Jira.png

For Epics and Initiatives, I added the "Parent Link" field to both the screens. When it is to set the parent link, everything looks fine. For Epics one can choose an Initiative and for the Initiative a list of Themes shows up. So the parent can be set correctly.

In the Initiative, the "Child issues" are shown correctly and on the right side, "Theme Test" is set for the parent link.

In the related theme however, no child issues show up, where you would expect the initiatives now...

I have no idea why it is working for epics below initiatives, but not for initiatves below themes?

Still need help on this.

Has anybody managed to configure Themes and Initiatives properly? 

I need to ask again, has anybody a solution for this? Is it a bug or did I forget to configure something?

I wonder why it works for Epics below Initiatives, but not for Initiatives under Themes?

Hi @p0cket0m 

Have you committed your changes from Advanced Roadmaps to Jira?


How do you mean commited? In roadmaps everything seems ok, initiatives are shown correctly as child items below themes.

What we need is to show them also correctly in standard Jira (new) issue view. With epics below initiatives, it works even if we don't use advanced roadmaps at all.

Commiting in Roadmaps has no effect on the issue. It occurs also when you work in Jira Software only.

Hi @p0cket0m, did you find a fix?

I have the same problem. My hierarchy doesn't have Themes but my Child Epics don't show in the Initiative. I'm also waiting on an answer.
