Filter for a single Jira that shows non-greyed out hierarchy?

I'm trying to find a way to filter a Portfolio Plan based on a parent Jira in a way that automatically includes all the children Jiras in the hierarchy WITHOUT greying them out.  I know I could do this with something like labels, but that will require more manual upkeep.  I can do this with just JQL, but I can't seem to find a way with the Portfolio Plan filtering options to do this.

We use the "Portfolio for Jira plan" Confluence macro, and ultimately, we want all child Jiras to not be greyed out in this macro, without needing to rely on something like labels.

Hi @Heather Barcomb ,

Thanks for the feedback on this... sadly it's not possible to achieve what you're asking for at the moment. When we created the design for this we wanted to find a way to clearly indicate issues that to not match the specified filter. The reason that this was important was that we still wanted to show issues both above and below matched issues within the hierarchy (i.e. we didn't want to prevent you drilling down into descendant issues or being able to see the issues ancestors).

We recognise that there are problems with the current implementation because it makes it harder for those greyed out issues to be read and they can be confused as being in a disabled state. To be completely honest we have yet to decide on a satisfactory way in which to resolve this problem... we have considered options like removing the faded state and just replacing with an icon on each row that matches the filter, or even just adjusting the opacity of the fade so that it is not quite so prominent. 

It sounds like you would just rather have this styling removed entirely? If that's the case would you not be concerned with not being able to identify issues that don't match the filter?



I don't mind the fading in general.  I can definitely see the benefits of it in certain situation.  For my situation, just having a  filter option where you can use a jql query would work.

One option would be to use a JQL filter as an issue source and then (at least on the Server version of Advanced Roadmaps) you can filter by issue source (look for "Issue source" in the filters menu). That would then provide you the view you're looking for.

However, if you're looking to very quickly change the filter within the plan then that's not possible (because the filters in a plan are done in the browser, whereas JQL filtering is done on the server).



I think this will work for us.. thank you!
