Scheduled behavior in Portfolio (3.0) for Jira and rights for scenarios


Dear all,

I have two questions. Although I went through all of these articles,

I still can not really explain how Portfolio calculates for example the days for an epic in case there are stories assigned to it, but no sprint, only release, no work is logged and only story points based on S, M , X, L are added in the tickets and creation dates, but what I get as a plan is for example, see below. How do I get those 54 days as I am planning in story points and how is the beginning for 16th of July defined and the end for 7th of September. Thank you in advance. No custom fields are also defined as far as I am informed.

Where are also the values in the target start and target end date coming?

I have another question as well - how can I give to someone the opportunity to play with the scenarios without changing after that anything in Jira, can I provide those rights with the permission Portfolio for Jira restricted user or not. Thanks a lot KR Radosveta2019-07-23 15_20_56-TEST - Portfolio for Jira - iTask-PreProd.png:

Hi Radosveta,

It looks like your plan is configured to use either day or hours as planning units (By looking at the screenshot) and if you are planning in story points, you could change it in the plan configuration form the scheduling section.

By looking at the screenshot, the child stories seem to have dates on them and the Epic is getting its date from the child stories.

Regarding your second question, Portfolio restricted user permission should prevent the users from committing back to JIRA.

Also, did you run Auto-Schedule on this plan or the dates of the stories are set explicitly by you?

Dear Raathi,First of all thank you for the answer.

I understand, but that can be said related to the beginning date, how are the dates related to the end - the planned dates calculated. And my question related to the target start and end date still remains as I did not put anything in the ticket and Ihave used auto-schedule as a function.

Thank you for the question of my second question, so it means till the changes are restricted, scenarios can not be saved as well.

Kind regards
