JIRA for a large non-Agile project

Just had a  question on the best way to use JIRA for a large multi-year project.  Obviously, the default agile methodology isn't a good fit, so what's the best way to organize work given there may be hundreds, if not thousands of tasks created during this project?   

Should we go the route of using versions to mark milestones, or should we create EPICS and stories instead?  

If anyone has suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Hi Matthew,

a good way how to handle such a large project would be JIRA Portfolio which is quite handy add-on. Along with use of versioning you gain high level insight into your plan and overall progress while being able to test different scenarios for any changes

Thank you for the feedback.  We'll take a look at JIRA Portfolio.
