v2.0.8 - 22nd September 2016

The Portfolio for JIRA team announces the release of Portfolio for JIRA 2.0.8, which includes a critical bugfix.

Important

There are potential performance and memory problems in the versions 2.0.6 and 2.0.7 related to the display of hierarchy information (parent field, child issues) on individual JIRA issues. The issue is located in the JIRA's View, Create and Edit issue screens.

We urge users running Portfolio for JIRA 2.0.6 and 2.0.7 to upgrade to 2.0.8 as soon as possible in order to solve this problem.

v2.0.6 - 30th August 2016

The Portfolio for JIRA team announces the release of Portfolio for JIRA 2.0.6, which includes the following features:

On this page:

Expose the hierarchy information in JIRA Software

This feature allows you to show the parent link field within JIRA so you can easily access Portfolio's hierarchical relationships.

With this feature you can also see the child issue list  within the parent issue in JIRA Software.

Learn to expose the field here.

 

Default estimates 

We apply default estimates to unestimated issues if the respective hierarchy level is defined in the plan's planning unit.

Learn more about the default estimates here.

 

Define an estimate method conversion factor

Sometimes, you happen to have different issue sources with different estimation methods but you want to import them into one Portfolio plan. A plan can only have one estimation unit so you will have to convert estimates of the secondary planning unit to the primary planning unit. In this section, you'll learn how to select a conversion ratio that will convert time to story points once your plan has been created.

Learn more about the conversion factor here.

 

Dependencies schedule

This feature allows you to have more control on how things are scheduled.

You can now choose whether you want the schedule to rank the dependent items below the required items or to rank the required items above the dependent items. You can also force the schedule to ignore dependencies.

Learn more about the dependencies schedule here.

v2.0.0 - 7th June, 2016

We’re excited to announce that Portfolio for JIRA 2.0 has arrived, featuring a  new integration  with JIRA Software, which has been redesigned from the ground up. By loading data dynamically from JIRA Software, you can plan in  real time  and everything will always be up to date. The new integration means you can say goodbye to manually tracking progress and status using disconnected tools. Your tea m's  work in JIRA will automatically roll up into Portfolio so you can get visibility across all teams and projects at a glance.

If you have an existing Portfolio plan, keep in mind that it won't get migrated to the new integration model automatically and you can keep using it as usual. Newly created plans will benefit from the new model.

On this page:

What's new in 2.0?

  • Integration model / real-time syncing - Integration  with JIRA Software has been redesigned from ground up. Your team's work in JIRA will automatically roll up into Portfolio so you can get visibility across all teams and projects.
  • Getting started wizard - The new plan creation allows you get up and running in 4 steps, and in less than a minute.
  • Sandbox planningNow you can play with different scenarios before deciding to commit changes back to JIRA Software. 
  • Unlimited hierarchy levelsPortfolio for JIRA groups your issues in hierarchical levels. You can customize both name and hierarchy level to adapt it to your needs.
  • Release model - Out-of-the-box grouping of releases by JIRA Software projects, and cross-project releases that are used to manage joint releases, dates and milestones  across multiple individual projects.
  • Team management - Share teams across multiple plans so you only have to define your teams in one place.
  • Dependencies management - Use JIRA issue links to define scheduling dependencies between issues.

I've used the latest version of live plans in labs, is there any difference to 2.0? 

Live plans are now the standard and graduated out of labs. Since the last labs release we've added capabilities to assign issues to sprints directly from the timeline and the scope view, and incorporated further feedback, bug fixes and performance improvements.

Check out the new Portfolio for JIRA 2.0 demo!
