how to create project with custom issues nesting its parent issue

We have to build a small project in JIRA Cloud for our internal Business Task management.

PRIORITY - To capture High level requirements, we have to create a PRIORITY.  Its more an equivalent to an Epic.

MILESTONE -Each PRIORITY would have many Milestones where a large PRORITY  is       broken down in to many Milestones.

And each Milestone will have many sub-tasks.



So, it would be like below structure

         Milestone 1
                    Subtask 001
                    Subtask 002

         Milestone 4
                     Subtask 001
                     Subtask 002

         Milestone 1
                 Subtask 0001
                 Subtask 0002
                 Subtask 0003
                 Subtask 0004


It seems I should create new Issue Types :

PRIORITY and MILESTONE ( standard issue type)

However, in this case, I am wondering

>HOW Milestones will get nested under its respective PRIORITY ?

> And HOW we can view/create above structure Report in JIRA cloud ?


We are new to JIRA so your right approach/advice is much appreciated.

hello @Mobily Monks .

Unfortunately, there is no way to create an Epic level issue type in Jira.
You either have to use the Epic issue type or try apps such as structure.


My advice here would be to stick to the Epic issue type as it is very well integrated with Jira.
