Creating Features Edited

Is there a way to create a Jira tree that would look like this? Epic > Feature > Stories?  Is there a way to create Features?  A feature would be a complete working piece of software that could be added to a system, such as table that has filters (dropdowns), checkboxes for batch actions, an action menu, columns with the ability to sort ascending to descending, a secondary search filter, etc. s A feature would be comprised of multiple components of user stories), that can go under a bigger Epic called System Tables/Grids?

Plain Jira only has project-level entities - Epic -> Story -> Sub-task.

But if you add apps such as Structure, Advanced Roadmaps, Jira Align and so-on, they can provide more layers

Hi @Ryan Johnson 

If you're using Advanced Roadmaps (Jira Premium), you can have additional hierarchical levels (eg. Initiative) - see this page.

However, you can't move the Epic issue type from the Epic-level, nor add an additional hierarchical level between Epic and Story-level. There is a suggested enhancement for the latter, see JSWCLOUD-19407 

In this instance, I'd consider either:

  • Accepting a level above the Epic as the larger issue type, such as Initiative
  • Placing a Feature above Epic, then a further issue type above that (eg. Program Epic).
    • You could place Story at the same level as Epic in this instance, although you do lose some good Epic-based functionality (Epic panel, Epic reporting, Epic swimlanes, etc) 
  • Using an app, such as Structure
