JIRA Portfolio - Hierarchy for bugs/features?

I am trying to figure out how to have a hierarchy that is a bit different than what seems to be allowed in Portfolio.

We have Program -> Epic -> Feature, Bug -> Subtask

It seems like I have to force either Bugs to be under features or features under bugs, when in reality they are at an equal level under a Program or Epic. Does portfolio only allow for a single hierarchy?

Hello, in my example bellow I have almost the same hierarchy you want :

  • Initiative (you could named it Program if you want)
  • Epic
  • Story - Bug (this is the name of the level, but all issue type execpt Initiative, Epic and subtask are in this level)
  • Subtask (all sub-tasks issue type)
