When we select stories in portfolio, we don't get a roadmap. Also, is there a way to have the stories that have been added to an Epic to show below the epic in the Scope?
Thanks for reaching out, and a little clarification is needed to make sure we are on the same page. I understand the behavior you are seeing is related to issues missing at the story level from the timeline, but when you are selecting the story hierarchy are you getting an explicit page load error of some kind, OR is the scope visible with issues and then in the Timeline empty noting "There are no issues in the current result set." at the top OR are there no issues present in the scope at all?
For the above scenarios I outlined some possibilities below, let me know if any of this lines up or if you are seeing something else entirely:
Next, if there are not explicit errors then it's more than likely that the issues do not have a valid time based value that can be scheduled in the plan. If you're showing stories in the scope but the timeline is only displaying "There are no issues in the current result set." this means that the issues do not have a value present that is capable of tracking a projected outcome on the timeline per the algorithm, basically there are no items that have any estimate on a time based metric to give the issue any weight. Values such as story point or time estimate, a release with a fixed release date, or assigned to a sprint with a defined date. See the "Scheduling behavior" Documentation for specifics on the values used to calculate out the projected timeline.
But as an example of where this can happen is if you set a release on your epic with a fixed release date BUT no points or release is set on the stories in that Epic like this:
Epic level has a release so it shows up in the timeline schedule:
But at the Story Level no release or story points present so the schedule is empty:
You can either add in an estimate, default values, or target dates, as covered in these articles:
If there are No Issues present at all at the story level I would suspect it would be more in line with a filter excluding issues of a certain type, or issues have been excluded, or you are beyond the hard set limit in a plan for issue count.
For the issue count limits, there is an upper limit of 100 Project and 5000 open issues per plan with a limit of only 2000 issues total that can be rendered to the hierarchies at any time due to performance restriction. If you have more than 2K issues in total across all hierarchies the lower hierarchies are disabled and will not render, See https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JPOCLOUD-1671 for more details
If its not the limit enforcement, then check out the following post that gives a really good breakdown on other reasons that would block an issue from displaying:
Thanks for the update, and if nothing is in the Scope or Timeline at the story level that narrows it down to most likely one of the items noted on that previous post I mentioned above:
But again check out the items in that list and let me know if you have any additional questions.
