How to designate "Build" issue type to get various approvals required for "releasing" on production

I am trying to use "Build" issue to seek approvals required from various teams and approvers for releasing a verion into production.

Issue i am facing, Build is designated as "Task" so it only allows to create sub-tasks under it which other teams are not willing to consider as 1)do not add to velocity in Story points 2) will have to chnage board filters to reflect sub-tasks, which will show subtasks for all stories and tasks.

Is there a better way to do it? Is there a possibility that we can deisgnate "Build" as Epic so all child tasks can be "tasks" instead of "sub-tasks"?

Thank you!

Hi @priyanka pore welcome to the community.
Epics/Stories/Tasks are all standard issue types.
Epics get special attention in the system via issue links and system fields.
You can emulate the Epics behavior in the same fashion through the creation of some smart custom fields to follow the pattern of the EpicLink/EpicName and setting up your own issue linking.

Have a read on issue links.
