Portfolio for Jira is specifically aimed at managing a multi-project portfolio. It does not look as if next-gen projects will be at that level really soon.
Jason Wong, a lead Product Manager for Jira Cloud has recently hosted an Ask me Anything session on this Community. A lot of interesting information about the roadmap and where the product(s) currently are can be found there.

Hi - perhaps to ask a similar question to Michael - what is Atlassian's strategy with Portfolio for JIRA and next-gen projects? Will next-gen projects for JIRA be extended to support multiple teams and to incorporate some of the Portfolio for JIRA features? Or will Portfolio for JIRA continue to be developed to better support multiple team plans and Enterprise scenarios?
We are looking at options for roadmap management and overall backlog management. For me the next-gen roadmap doesn't cut it because it only seems to have good support for a roadmap for a single dev team. But, we need to decide what product to invest in for tracking the work of multiple teams. In order to make the choice of product I'd like to know what Atlassian's strategy is here.
Honestly it would be nice if Atlassian would spend less time blogging and more time telling us what’s actually coming down the pipe as we have to hedge our bets on which products and apps we can adopt and hope Atlassian doesn’t pull the plug on them or replace them with other products.
Simple question - still no clarity after 7 months. Atlassian please consider your running a subscription service not a top secret covert skunk works product here. If you cannot tell customers what you intend to support when your marketing says one thing and the product doesn't do that thing then we must assume you will not continue to support the product and prepare to cancel or look for alternatives - if you don't answer the questions then our base assumption going forward will be you're dropping JIRA Portfolio for your recent acquisition - JIRA Agile which does basically the same thing.
I low key wish that Next Gen projects came with a warning something like "we might not have any intention of making this work with our other products so use at your own risk"
Because realising this now... is tedious. Especially after we've built next gen projects but looks like I'll have to do a lot of graft to... downgrade to an inferior product to support portfolio?
