Parent issue type for Epic while using Ceptah Bridge


I am a Program Manager at Adobe and evaluating the Ceptah Bridge to work with JIRA and MS Project.
I am wondering if there is any way I can map a parent issue type to an Epic using Ceptah Bridge

In our JIRA we have a issue type call as a "Customer Deal" and we attach the Epic to that. Under our Epic we have another issue type called as "Release" and we attach out Stories to the Release issue type.

In the Ceptah Bridge documentation I see that the highest level of hierarchy should be Epic in JIRA. 

How can I achieve the above hierarchy in MS Project using Ceptah Bridge.

Hi Dipti,

Epics do not have to be on the first level of hierarchy. You can configure the Epic Link mapping to be applied to the Release issue type and leave the level filter set to 1..n. In that case Releases will be linked to the Epic parents regardless of the Epic position in the hierarchy. Likewise, when data is copied from JIRA to MS Project, the Release tasks will be moved in the hierarchy as required and their Epics do not have to be on the first level.
