Committing your plan changes

In Portfolio for JIRA, you can play with different scenarios before deciding to commit changes back to JIRA. This is a very handy feature in Portfolio for JIRA, because you can play out different scenarios, like having just 2 teams instead of 3 teams handling the work items at a specific duration, and then see how this scenario affects your plan.

The changes made in your scenario are indicated by orange markers.

Each time you change something in your plan, a number appears in an orange bubble with Uncommitted changes, representing the number of changes you've made.

Depending on the results of these scenarios on your plan, you can then decide to commit to your JIRA application, or discard these changes.


To commit changes to JIRA:

The steps below assume you've already made several changes in your plan.

  1. Click Uncommitted changes next to your plan name. A window displays, listing the changes you've made.
  2. Review the changes you've made thoroughly. You can click the issue title to open a detailed view of the changes.
  3. If necessary, clear the checkboxes for any changes that you don't want to commit.
  4. When you're satisfied with the changes, click Commit selected changes. The committed changes will now be visible in your JIRA application.

Note the following details:

  • Issues may disappear upon committing usually because they don’t match the filter query of the board. To make them display, click on the message, and set the required values on your issues so id shows up again.
  • Changes to issues and releases will be reflected in your JIRA application.
  • Changes to private teams will only affect your plan.
  • Changes to shared teams will be committed to global team management.

 

To revert changes made:

  1. Click Uncommitted changes next to your plan name. A window displays, listing the changes you've made.
  2. Select the checkboxes for the changes you want to revert.
  3. Click Revert changes.

Troubleshooting

Why are my issues disappearing after I commit them?

This is currently a problem with issues that are created and committed for particular issue sources. If the issue source is a filter or a board, and the queries used for that source require a specific field value, then that field value will not be applied when creating issues.

We're working on a solution for this, but for now, we recommend that you:

  1. Use an agile board for your filter, and
  2. Initially create your issues in that agile board.

In most cases, the required filter values will be automatically added to the issues.

Time estimates get cleared after I commit

To keep the time estimates in Portfolio for JIRA, you will have to activate the time tracking in JIRA.

  1. Go to your JIRA application >  > Issues > Time tracking.
  2. Select the time tracking configuration, and then click Activate.
