Hi Bhavin,

When an app is uninstalled the data is still there, so even if you uninstall and decide you want to re-enable the app later on you can re-install and the previous configurations will still be present when re-enabled. 

To check what projects are using portfolio currently would require manual review of the plan settings, and you can go to "Portfolio > View All Plans" and review the settings of each independently.

If you're not using Portfolio you can simply flag the application for uninstall under the manage apps section of the universal plugin manager as covered in the  "Managing apps" documentation.

Currently when Jira Portfolio is installed, it installs with with 3 independent add-ons apps that act as dependencies of each other, and you will want to uninstall all three to remove the app:

  • Portfolio for JIRA
  • Portfolio Live Plans
  • Portfolio Team Management


@Earl McCutcheon - Thanks ! This sounds to be helpful.

I installed Portfolio for Jira and found out that it doesn't meet my requirements. So I unsubscribed it from the Manage Apps screen. But the Teams Feature and related fields are still around and available on issues. They didn't get used by anyone so I'd like to clean up by removing all the Portfolio related fields so that some team doesn't start using them at a later date and figures that it's a Portfolio dependent field.


Any advise?

@Sreenath H B Same here, it creates custom fields that are system blocked

We've just unsubscribed as well, and I still see the 'Plans' option in the top navigation bar, which means I can still create a plan and see the configuration screens.  Is this intended?
