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:
