Jira Portfolio 2.0 incorrectly plans active stories

We are currently switching to the new live portfolio plan, and are quiet pleased with it over all.

However, we're having an issue with the automatic story scheduling. The issue we're having is that stories that are currently planned in our active sprint and badly incorporated in the project scope and timeline. Instead of appearing at the very stop of the story list in the scope view, they seem to be placed randomly. This completely messes up our estimate release dates, as the plan places tasks that will be completed this week to many weeks ahead.

Is this a known issue, or are we missing something?

Hi @Alex Pabouctsidis, is the active sprint correctly picked up by Portfolio at all, i.e., do you see its sprint name in the schedule if you look at the stories view? 

The active sprint is considered only if the plan is connected to a board, and if that board is linked to the team as the "preferred issue source" (little dropdown directly under the team name in team management) - in this case, you should see active sprints showing up for that team, and then also assignments into that sprint should be respected and overrule priority order or other constraints. 

If that doesn't answer the problem, I'd suggest to raise a support ticket to investigate further. Thanks! 

Thanks for the feedback.

The problem was that the plan was linked to our Project, and not the board itself.
