Doubts jql hierarchy Initiative and bigpicture

Davida January 18, 2023

Hello everyone!

I currently have two templates of project in my Jira Standard Cloud, portfolio project and Operational project.

  • In Portfolio it would have the structure Business Value>-> Initiative
  • In Operational Projects it would have the structure Classical Epic-> Story/bug...


The structure would be

      Business Value (issue link Is Parent of)

                       -> Initiative (issue link Is Parent of)





I only have Jira Standard and Bigpicture apps.  I don't have the Premium version Jira nor do I have the jql [ issuekey in childIssuesOf("XXX-1") ]

When I'm scoping inside bigpicture, is there a way to indicate that I only want to get requests related to Business Values ​​up to Story?


Best regards

Many approaches to Initiatives exist throughout the project management community. Some claim an initiative is a short-lived, rough idea that will either receive funding (and become a project) or be scrapped. According to others, an initiative is as elaborate as a project, has epics and stories linked to it, and lives as long as a regular project would do. How to model initiatives in Jira BigPicture? Also, how to leverage Portfolio for Jira initiatives in BigPicture?
