Project Hierarchy

Project Hierarchy
Introduction

With the help of the Agile Hive Project Hierarchies, you can map the four SAFe levels (Portfolio, Large Solution, ART and Team) as well as the business units located therein.

The SAFe levels are represented as horizontal layers. The business units are shown as colored diamonds within the layers.

Go to 'Administration → Manage Apps → Project Hierarchies' to configure the Agile Hive Project Hierarchies.
