I'm new to Jira. We are using JIRA software with a 2-3 weeks visibility and we are testing Portfolio for our mid-long term planning (2 to 6 months).
We have the following setup:
When I created the initial Portfolio I only imported the dev board, not the Kanban board.
I'd like to know if I can do the following:
Yes, you can add a new board to an existing plan. You can find the Issue sources tab under Configuration, which guides you through the process of adding a new board again.
You can create issues directly into the projects related to the plan. It will remember your last choice, so just change the project selector (while creating an issue inline in Portfolio) to your desired project and it will stay there.
I've discovered that adding projects or boards is hit or miss. Creating a Plan from scratch works like a champ. Adding to the plan has issues. I go to Configuration and add a Board. The new board does not inherit the project icon and even after I add it to the teams, not all issues show every time. (have to delete and add the board a few times) See image below. Teams 1-4 look great. Team 5 was added to the plan.
