Jira Portfolio - How to get the jira portfolio plan assignment of a specific issue?


Dear all, 

I'm looking for a way get the Jira Portfolio Plan Name or Plan Id of an issue 

E.g. inmagine an Epic which is assigned to/which is Part of  a Jira Portfolio Plan with Plan Name "Plan ABC" and  Plan id "123". 

So how could I get that information (give me the Plan Name or Id of that Epic (and null if it's not assigned to any plan)) either as a scriptrunner jql function or programmatically via the scriptrunner groovy script console. 

I know there exists this jql function "issuekey in issuesInPlan(123)" so I could do something like "issuekey in issuesInPlan(123) and issuetype = Epic" and than check wether the Epic-Key is in that resultlist, but I need a more direct approach at a lower cost.


Thank you in advance, 

Best regards,

Hi @Walter Buggenhout _ACA IT_ 

thanks a lot for your fast reply. What a pitty. 

I'm trying to build a time evaluation tool, which aggregates the the jira time bookings (worklogs) to the different Jira Portfolio Plans, so such a feature would have been handy.

Hi @timmurko ,

Thanks for reaching out. But I am afraid that what you are trying to achieve is not really possible.

A Portfolio plan retrieves its data through different dynamic data sources: an agile board, a saved filter or a Jira project. The issues belonging to a plan can be retrieved through those sources, but the ID of or reference to a plan is not persisted against the individual issues. And so you cannot go the other way around.

Hi @timmurko

I'm unsure as to what you want to achieve, but it sounds like reporting. Have you considered pulling the data from your plan(s) into a reporting tool like EazyBI (based on the filters you use as input to your plan) and aggregating your worklogs there?
