Biggantt: Stories under Features

Hello :)

In one of our projects we are working with a Epic -> Feature -> Story -> Sub-task Hierarchy. It seems like the Hierarchy Builder doesn´t put Stories under Epics.

Do I have a wrong configuration or is it not possible as easy as I think? In case it´s not configurable "out of the box" is there a way to work around this limitation? 

Thank you!


@Anna-SoftwarePlant maybe you could also help me with this question. Thank you! <3)

Hi @Stella Berger

Of course, I'm in :)

Could you please confirm the expected outcome? Epic >> Story >> Feature >> Subtask, right? 

Indeed there is no built-in structure builder referring to Feature. However, in BigGantt, you can automatically create a no-limited number of WBS levels based on links and adjust it to your workflow. 

You can link Features with Stories in Jira using the Parent-Child relation link and then activate the accurate structure builders in Box Configuration >> Tasks >> Task structure. To achieve the structure mentioned above, please also remember to activate Epic & Sub-task builders.

The task structure (hierarchy) of a Box will be generated automatically by the App according to your specifications.

If your expected outcome is different, just let me know :)

Hi again @Anna-SoftwarePlant  :)

The expected outcome should look like this:  Epic >> Feature >> Story >> Sub-task

With "Parent-Child relation link" do you mean a link relation between issues like "blocks" or "is blocked by" or where do I configure this relationship? 

The structure Builder "Parent to child relations" is not visible in my biggantt config. Is this a customed link type?

Thankssss!! :)

Hi @Stella Berger

We recommend using the "Parent-Child relation link" in this case.
If you don’t have such a link type in Jira, please go to Jira Administration >> Issues >> Issues Features >> Issue linking >> and add a new link type. See my image as a reference.

Once such a link type is created in Jira, it will immediately appear as a structure builder in BigGantt >> Program Configuration >> Tasks >> Task Structure. Then please activate it and link Stories & Features.

This will be the final structure :)
