I'm using the the Jira Portfolio plugin to produce a Gantt chart. I've included issues from several projects.
Projects are shown in a very specific order, that's non-alpanumeric, e.g. Project B then Project A below.
How is it determined? How can I influence it?
I believe this answer from Epic ranking in Portfolio 2.0 can help start answer your question:
The rank from Portfolio should generally be represented on the JIRA board, however there are some differences in epic rank behavior between Portfolio and JIRA which can cause epics to be inconsistent. This is because the rank of epics in JIRA are independent to the rank of stories whereas in Portfolio the rank of stories and epics directly impact each other.The main contributors to inconsistent rank behavior between JIRA & Portfolio are:
- In Portfolio the highest ranking child issue of an epic determines that epic’s rank relative to other epics.
- In Portfolio re-ranking the epic also bulk re-ranks all the child stories.We recognize that this isn't optimal behavior but it’s a necessary trade-off for the intended use of Portfolio and the integration with JIRA.
Take a look at the comments for more information and please vote on JPOSERVER-1387 to help get better ranking in Portfolio.
Thanks, Branden. I'm not looking at the order or issues (epics, stories, ...) but of projects. So the vertical order, not the horizontal one.
In the following screenshot, you can see that project PLAT comes before IOS wich comes before ADR. Is this order influenced by the epics contained? If so, I'll re-read the linked post.
In the past I haven't seen a different in project order, regardless of the issues from these projects displayed. Also I couldn't influence it by changing the issue source. I would expect the project to be displayed in alphanumeric order.
