Jira FAQs – Issue Hierarchy

We often get lot of questions when working at our clients implementing agile (scrum, kanban, xp (extreme programming) so we decided to start a general FAQ page for this as it often is the same across all our clients.

Q1. How do you display hierarchy between Epics, user stories and subtasks in Jira (Greenhopper)?

Option 1:
