I piloting Jira before adopting for a wider team, and have most of Jira figured out.
I have searched, and I have been unsuccessful finding out exactly what setting I need to change in order to link a TASK to a STORY.
I am looking to do this type of hierarchy:
And when I click on the three dots on the TASK and select Add Parent
I only get the option to add an Epic parent, not a Story parent.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
Hi @John Houser and welcome to the Community!
On the Story, you click on Link Issue and enter the issue key of the Task and choose the type of linkage you want it to be (Blocks, Relates to, ...). Or you can do the same on the Task but enter the Story key there.
Hi @John Houser -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
Based upon your hierarchy example image, you may instead want to use the Jira issue types:
Tasks in Jira are at the same level as Story and Bug (defect), and so can only be connected with links, as @Kristjan Geir Mathiesen - Origo describes. Sub-tasks are child items of a Story, Task, or Bug.
