Once you have used Portfolio to work out a plan and allocated Epics to sprints, how do you actually make this live ? By this I mean, currently none of the stories have had their Sprint field updated to reflect the plan.
I presume I don't manually have to re-arrange the backlog, assign to sprints, etc having carefully got this all organised in Portfolio ???
Agreed, but that is not updating sprints and the like.
Sure, if I manually through Portfolio go through and update every issue/PBI with the sprint I can then press commit to store in Jira, but that's not the bit I need automated (I could have done that directly in Jira).
The bit I need is that one I have pressed "Calculate", the app runs through and updates all the PBIs with the scheduled sprint ready for me to commit.
Otherwise I may just as well set the sprint the old way in Jira directly
There are issues raised and resolved to build the functionality in Atlassian, but I have not seen the functionality. Unfortunately, assigning sprints is still manual as far as I know. Consider it a baseline, then build from there :/
