Portfolio live plan shows as overbooked when it should NOT be

I currently have all my teams setup w/ the correct sprint point velocity, and a release scheduled for a fixed time period. However, the timeline is showing up as RED and the release is showing as "overbooked". How can this be when I have more than enough resources to cover 5x the # of points?

Also, changing the velocity of the team does nothing to impact this. Is this a bug?

I only seem to be able to 'solve' this when I change the enddate of release X to be a day before the start of release Y. Which is weird as that means I have to end the release on a Sunday...???

So it seems portfolio doesn't take into account that Saturday and Sunday are marked as non-working days.

There is an issue reported that seems similar to this: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JPOSERVER-1756

Aaron, my guess is that this has to do with the "Maximum assignees per story" configuration option of the plan.  If you have people assigned to your teams and the value of that field is less than number of people on each team, Portfolio will limit the amount of work that can be done concurrently.  I questioned this in another thread here somewhere.

@Peter Callies - unfortunately thats not it. I've changed that setting (and all other settings for that matter) and the dates NEVER change after recalculation. Leads me to believe they just don't work....

I am facing the same issue.

I have one release which has 3 issues to be addressed.

The team has 120 hrs to do.

Cumulative estimation of the estimated work is 16 hrs.

But portfolio is showing estimated release date after 2 months.


Is here any issue with my configuration?

For me the solution was the "" - in the configuration. It was set to on which caused the separate stages of a work item to be scheduled sequentially into separate sprints. With the setting changed to 'off' it works as expected for me now.
