Portfolio for Jira: How do I get my next Gen projects to show up properly in Portfolio for Jira?

I added a next Gen project to Portfolio Plan and it does not show up When I am viewing the epics.  I created a separate plan with only that new Next Gen Scrum Project, and it imported the issues, but it considers an epic the same as a task, so none of my work is rolling up into epics to give me the Gantt view.  Has anyone had any luck with the Next Gen Scrum projects and Portfolio for Jira?

Hello ! Same problem, and the story points aren't linked too

@André Aubin  I got a response from Atlassian. 

"This is a known limitation on Portfolio that can't map the Next-Gen issue types as they have some different set of configurations from the classic project, that's why when using a Next-Gen as issue source for Portfolio you don't see the epic at the Scope table when using the hierarchy for Epics."

They have a ticket open to extend the Portfolio for Jira to Next-Gen projects.  You can vote on it to help this feature move forward.

Same Boat! Feel very helpless.

Deal break. Cannot and wont use NexGen projects if portfolio does not support them.

Hi @Amy Garcia any update. We are almost a year ahead ......?

@Floor Tuinstra 

The issue is still open.

Another related issue that may solve the problem, the new Next Gen Projects have the nice Roadmap Gantt view.  If Jira would add the ability to customize the filter to show multiple projects(like they do for the original Jira projects), This Roadmap feature could replace Portfolio.  That ticket is here to add the ability to configure filters for next-gen projects:

Hi @Amy Garcia  thanks for the quick reply and answer. Unfortunately this only works if you have a stand-alone project.

If you want to combine boards from multiple teams to see where they works on and do an analysis this Roadmap functionality can't be used unless you have a solution for this?

This might be of help for simple scenarios. Portfolio allows to manage teams, skills, velocity and cross-project planning, which is more than a simple roadmap.

@Floor Tuinstra Yes that is correct, it's not possible in Next Gen.  That's why I linked the ticket  to add the ability to configure filters(to show multiple projects) for next-gen:
https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWCLOUD-17444

Atlassian did release a new version of Portfolio, but it is only available for the server versions not cloud, and I do not know if Portfolio 3.0 is linked with Next Gen projects or not:
https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Portfolio-for-Jira-articles/Portfolio-for-Jira-3-0-is-here/ba-p/1043376

The only information I have seen about integrating Portfolio with Next Gen projects is on this ticket:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JPOCLOUD-2652
