Add an additional level to the story map (Easy Agile User Story Maps for JIRA)


I've just installed an evaluation version of the plugin. However, I'm wondering if it would be possible to add an additional level above the "epic" level, which you call the backbone. Our users have tested it and would like to have the ability to configure an additional level above epics, based on the Theme issue type perhaps. Would this be possible?


Best regards,

Hi Johan,

This is certainly something we are exploring, both for customers with JIRA Portfolio and those without.

For the Portfolio customers I think it makes sense to reuse the Theme issue type as that provides consistency across JIRA Software, Portfolio, and the story map.

As for the additional level for activities where a customer doesn't have Portfolio I think we'll likely select Component as most customers we've spoken with seem to use this already for that grouping.

I've made a note to follow up with you when we being investigating this in more detail.

Thanks Johan, have a great day.
