I've got an existing set of ~15 projects which I've reflected in a custom hierarchy (see below). I've ~30 issues at the Initiative level and many more at the Feature level.
In Jira, I've created a notional hierarchy using a custom "implements" link. So Epics (in one of the ~15 projects) implement Features and Features implement Initiatives.
So: I was hoping when I created a plan in Portfolio that Portfolio would somehow import the issues in my custom hierarchy. When I create the plan I can see my Initiative and Features but there's no hierarchy there. Clicking on an Initiative just prompts me to enter the Jira ids for the next Feature. I could enter these manually but I wanted to check if I'm missing something here.
Basically, I'm looking for something easier than clicking on each Feature and entering the Initiative jira-id in the Parent-Link field. Given that I've > 100 Features to process, that's a lot of manual clicking I'd prefer to avoid if possible.
thanks for any help/guidance etc.
it's not possible to build up Portfolio hierarchy with a custom link at the moment, but we are working on it in scope of https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JPOSERVER-1423
