I am new to Jira and trying to implement simple Scrum:
Epic > User Story > Tasks.
Where the Story has the same workflow as the Tasks. If one of the Story's tasks in a spring, so is the Story... and when all associated tasks are done, Story is Done.
Actually, in an ideal world I'd have: Epic> Story > Criteria > tasks.
Unfortunately, in all my search, I've only found that Jira supports:
Epics > User Stories > Subtasks
... and these Subtasks don't even show up in the backlog view !!
This seems like obvious functionality that I must be missing... can someone point me in the right direction?
Any help would be appreciated.
If the answer involves "experience programming"... that's fine. Please tell me what needs to get done and I'll hire someone :).
Thanks for the suggested reading. Yes, creating an Epic from and Epic is possible but no way to relate both Epics to each other unless you do it manually for each Epic, much like how you need to relate a Task to a Story manually for each Task.
Jira seems like an immensely powerful tool with customizable issues, workflows, screen, schemes etc. but it seems to be falling down flat on its face on this most basic functionality. And it seems users have been asking for this for years (from articles I have seen in my due-diligence).
What a bummer.
