I actually was asking myself what information is considered in the JIRA Portfolio schedule algorithm? Of course the estimation (hour/story points), the ranking of the issues, dependencies, the assigned stages/skills and all the configured options in the configuration of the plan under "Scheduling"... But what else? The themes which are rated in %? The priority field or due date? Something else like "date created" (old issues first/last)?
Especially, I was wondering why fields like JIRA "priority" or due date are not even selectable as filters in the scope section. At least, this would be a very useful thing for doing the ranking which definitively is considered.
It would be much easier to convince my colleagues if I could let them know on which data basis Portfolio does the calculation. Can anybody help me?
- Backlog items' priority (Referring to the RANK, NOT the priority)
- Sequence - Start and end releases' dates
- Estimates and required skill level capacities
- Teams and people's availability
- People's skills - what type of work can each member do.
- Varying availability and absences. For example, vacations, people available only from certain.
- Dependencies between backlog items
- Work's stages - activities that can happen either in parallel or sequential activities.
- Team's schedules - iterations and sprint lengths, or continuous, day-to-day schedule.
- Configurable constraints for example, how many people can work in parallel on a story.
Thank you Steven, should have read that before...sorry!
However, it would still be great to show the priority (and some more JIRA fields) in portfolio so that I could change the ranking if necessary considering this information. Maybe I should submit this as suggestion.
we have this problem too. I cannot choose the field "priority" (also "aacount") from the available fields of Portfolio. This field won't be offer me. I don't see it. I see some other fields we need, But i can't choose them. They are marked as inactive.
Any ideas? In JIRA Filter i can access those fields.
Thnx and bye, Roland
