In JIRA Portfolio I can define Themes and assign them to epics or stories. When I view those issues in JIRA, can I see the associated Theme there?
I looked in the Custom Fields but there isn't one called 'Theme'.
The documentation section Showing Portfolio custom fields in JIRA Software doesn't mention it.
Bad news. :(
My problem is that after creating a new issue I need to refresh manually and separately the portfolio every time, since for example a new story as a child under the epic with a given Theme label will not get the Theme label automatically.
So the report in this current format is totally useless unless I manually check all the issues in the backlog every time and add the Theme label one by one.
That's make this very painful.
Chiming in on this, as this seems like a very bad overlook.
There isn't currently a way to set a theme on an issue. I even tried adding a 'Theme' label-type custom field. It isn't taken into consideration by Portfolio.
Furthermore, the "nomenclature" page in this official docs page - https://www.atlassian.com/blog/jira-software/jira-portfolio-fundamentals leads nowhere and it's all dead ends, really.
Hopefully we'll get an official response soon.
