Represent Activities on the Story Map

If you are looking to capture the 'Activity' level of the Story Map, as explained in Jeff Patton's original blog on the practice, we recommend you:

  • create a Jira component per Activity 
  • filter Epics using components on the Story Map

Jeff originally shared this hierarchy:

The nomenclature of the hierarchy differs in Jira as it provides the elements with different names. For example:

  • Project = Jira Project
  • Activity = Jira Project Component
  • Task = Epic Issue Type
  • Sub-tasks or task details = Story Issue Type

To view a particular activity on the Story Map, filter Epics by the activity component under the Filters menu. Example below:
