How to setup up a Feature/Theme to assign Epics

Is an Epic the highest level? We would like to organize our Epics into Features or Themes (without having to pay for a 'plug-in')


Thanks --

When I create the Feature/Theme Issue type, it will only let me link to a single Epic -which is kind of crazy --

Please just descibe your desired hierarchy. The "Epic Link" field only allows a One-Many relationship to be maintained.

What I am looking for is the standard agile hierarchy --

Feature -> Epic -> Story -> Task

I can set up an Epic with 1-many Stories --

I can set up a Story with 1 -many Sub-Tasks (tasks no can do)

But I can only have a single Epic link to a Feature

I started looking at Components -- which really is not an ideal solution, at least was able to group the Epics that way.

I also noted that time estimates did not roll up past a story to the Epic level -

Do I have to create a link for the Feature - Epic - Story - Task relationship at each level? I would like to keep that relationship intake without manually having to set the links (as you know, the more manual the more apt to error)
