Hide option to create Initiative under Epic

We have recently added a custom hierarchy using an Advanced road map, which looks like the following:

Initiative> Epic> UserStory/Bug> Subtask

We have spotted Errors many times that we can create Initiative under Epic,


  • Once we create Epic and see that epic in the issue screen, There is a plus sign above comments and if we click on that we see all options(Issuetype) also can create initiative,
  • A similar thing is happening for a User story, we can create one user story under another user story, which is not our requirement we can only generate subtask under the user story.

Really appreciate your help.
