My organization uses Aha and JIRA, but the problem that we're running into with the hierarchy in the data model is that there is no initiative/theme level object that allows me to group epics. 

Is there currently a way to achieve that high-level non-time specific grouping?

Hi Lindsay,

There's probably some plugins in the Marketplace that allow you to do this. One of them is JIRA Portfolio which allows you to customize the hierarchy above Epic the way you want. 

It also includes great features for project management, you should definetely check it out!

Hope this helps,
