How to include US in scope that was initially excluded?


I'm exploring the Jira Portfolio functionality, and I can't find an option to include an existing user story in the scope, that I initially excluded. I do see the option to create a new user story but that's not what I want.

Thanks in  advance!

Kind regards,

Hi Leon,

You can definitely include initially excluded issues back to plan unless they are already closed.

  1. In your plan, click Configure in the settings menu next to the plan title.
  2. Now click on Issue sources in the left side-bar.
  3. Click on Edit sources

You can edit the issue sources from here. Follow the steps and at the final step, you will be able to include excluded issues.

I hope that helps. Let us know if you have any other query,
