How to configure issue types hierarchy in next-gen projects?


Is it possible to set up issue types hierarchy levels in next-gen projects?

By default the top level of issues is Epic. I want to create more global issue type, like Initiative. But I can't make it more hierarchically superior than Epic.

You would need to use a plugin like Portfolio.

You can not configure hierarchies in next-gen projects.

Thank you Alexey.

I've checked up Portfolio plugin, but its more for managing different projects, but not for configure hierarchy levels. And I guess it doesn't work correct enaugh with next-gen projects. There some conflicts I found.

Anyway thank you!

Hi @alexxkey,

I wonder if Structure would work?

Hi Krizstian,

What exactly Structure do you mean?

Like p_montbazon likes this

Sorry I wasn't obvious at all, I mean the Structure add-on. However after looking it up, it doesn't seem to have a cloud version.

I wonder if a similar structure would be achievable with manual issue linking though? As issue links are visible on the issue detail screen.

Oh I get it. I didn't use Structure before and yes, it doesn't exist for Coud :)

I too struggle with not having topics higher than Epic in the next-gen project. My team needs three issue types that could be individually assigned to a sprint. Since SubTasks can't be individually added to a sprint.
