Create epics


Epics are large, typically crosscutting, customer-facing initiatives that include new development necessary to realize certain business benefits. Multiple capabilities are typically assigned to an epic, and an epic may span multiple program increments. Multiple features can be tied to an epic if this epic does not have any capabilities.

To create an epic:

  1. Select Portfolio from the left menu bar.
  2. Under the Manage section of the menu bar, select Epics; the Epics page displays.
  3. On the toolbar (top-right of the page), click the Add Epic button.
  4. Complete the required fields, and then click Save & Close.

Note: Add at least two epics to create a proper hierarchy.
