I am using the new Portfolio 2.0 on a JIRA cloud installation and I have a Plan set up. I am trying to bring my epics in. I am selecting the epics from the Plan-->Configure-->Issue Sources-->Edit Sources-->Confirm what's in Scope. And a bunch of the Issues are coming in as "Issues without parent Epic" even though they have Epics within JIRA. And a bunch of the Epics I've selected for inclusion aren't coming in at all. These are not Epics that I have previously excluded from the Plan.
We had a similar issue and were able to resolve it by changing the filter query on the JIRA board that was serving as our issue source. In JIRA we had a filter query that included:
issue type != epic
Removing this from the source board filter query resolved the issue. Hope that helps!
the filter is the basic project = "xxx" ORDER BY Rank ASC
and the Epic Link is included in the columns displayed
Is there anything else this could be? Is it because I never did a Commit from Portfolio before trying to reimport?
You have to be able to do that right? What if you've excluded some Epics from your Plan and then decide you need to re-include them?
So basically the very first answer explains it. Issues of a type 'Epic' should be present in your result set that you are using as a source for JIRA portfolio - be it coming for a board or from a filter. This effectively excludes any filters and boards that would might have issues filter by 'having an Epic Link = SOMrTHING. You need to include another source, which would esentially say this explicitly: Epic Link = "YOUR EPIC"
