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?
@Anna-SoftwarePlant maybe you could also help me with this question. Thank you! <3)
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?
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 :)
If something stays unclear, you know where to find me :)
Hello! Yes, I still have problems. I was able to see that option in the settings later, I guess it takes a while to update, but it doesn't change anything for me. On the one hand I want him to show me the epic to which the stories belong and on the other, I would like to have only a couple of epics in the gantt, I don't know if I can import epics or delete stories from the gantt without being deleted from the jira. thanks for your help
