Within my portfolio plan I have selected a specific epic and it's stories to be part of the plan, however, when the plan is created it only shows a 1 story rather than the 10 linked to the epic.
Does portfolio only recognize ticket statuses that are set to "in progress"?
Any suggestions on how to address this?
There are a couple of things you need to look at. First you should look at your sources and how you are pulling everything in. Make sure all the stories are available in your source (so look at your board or project). Second, take a look if you have excluded anything, not just in your sources, but also in your Releases. If you have excluded a release, then this will exclude all the stories associated with that release (this caught me a bunch).
