How do I synchronize the release date in Portfolio with JIRA board releases?

Today the default appears to be a one-time sync at the creation time of the plan.  I would like to take in any changes to the release dates as the board's release dates change - however it seems there is no sync option to do this.  Can you assist ?

Hi Bryant,

From how you are phrasing the question, I assume that you are using Portfolio 2.0. In that version, when you create a new Portfolio plan, you select the projects / filters / boards to get the issues from, select which releases you want to include and set the specifics regarding your team.

Before Portfolio 2.0 you had to make sure you manually added new information to your plan. Version 2.0 has been redesigned specifically to make sure that you do not have to perform these kinds of manual syncing anymore.

So if you add a Version to any project in scope of your Portfolio plan, that version will automatically be available in your Portfolio plan right away, without any further action. At worst, you might have to refresh your screen if you already had the plan open.

Maybe nice to know is that you can even add releases to your JIRA projects from Portfolio. And if this might be useful to your specific situation, cross-project releases can be created too. That means creating 1 single release in Portfolio that is shared with multiple projects.
