At my company we are working with Component based development team and trying to force this onto JIRA. Each component team got a project and the overall management are handled form a Project Management project that hosts all epics. Currently we have to create user stories through that epic, and then move them to correct component project to keep the link to the Epic. Is it possible somehow to add a system/custom field to stories created in a component project, in which you can connect to Epics from another project (the PM one)? We are using latest JIRA and GreenHopper.
It all depends on the boards you are using, you can use epics across project.
