How to add existing issues to portfolio plan below story/epic level


I'm using portfolio for jira (\).. and everything is working great in my first plan, however it seems that i cannot add existing issues under my epics as part of the plan.

Hi Abdullah,

This question has been answered through (, but I'll add the answers here as reference for other users who might have the same problem,  :)

Some of the Epic Childs are in "Done state" hence it won't be shown by default (unless you make some changes in the Portfolio filter). The definition "Done/Complete" issues here are those statuses that are in Done Category:
- https://<Instance URL>/secure/admin/ViewStatuses.jspa

As for the other issues that are not "Done" yet, you can re-include them back by following these steps:

  • Navigate to the plan configuration > Sources: https://<Instance URL>/secure/PortfolioPlanView.jspa?id=<Plan ID>&sid=#settings/sources
  • Edit Sources > Next > Next > find the missing issues and tick them (just hover your mouse in each of the issues and you will see tick box)
  • Repeat the above for any issues that you want to show in the plan
  • Done

This sounds overly convulted solution. It would be good to have feature to just punch in issue key to show up on the plan.

Like Samuel Justus likes this

but i still see that there is an intermittent issue while doing the above process. It doesnt get RE ADDED again. I believe ATLASSIAN is aware of this BUG.
