Level Selection

Portfolio Level



All views and information are immediately accessible via the Agile Hive menu in the Top Navigation Bar.
The Agile Hive menu updates itself automatically based on the settings made in the project hierarchies, which are maintained by Jira administrators.


Click on the Agile Hive menu so that the fly out appears.
Here you can directly access the views provided for each SAFe level. The layers use different colors for better differentiation.
The illustration shows a full SAFe configuration with four levels. To access a Portfolio simply select the desired Portfolio.

Portfolio Reports


The Agile Hive Portfolio Reports show an automated view of relevant information about a Portfolio. These reports are still in the initial phase and will be further expanded in the future


You can access the reports in the following ways:

  1. Select the desired Portfolio in the Agile Hive Menu
  2. Within a Portfolio project, click on the Agile Hive icon in the project sidebar

The Agile Hive Portfolio Reports consist of the following two tiles which are described in more detail below:

  1. Portfolio Members
  2. Portfolio Overview

Portfolio Members

The Portfolio Members tile introduces all Portfolio members with avatar, name and role.
Clicking on the respective avatar takes you to the Jira profile view of a member.

You can add new members by hovering over the tile and clicking the pen that appears in the upper right corner.

This opens the editing dialog. Here you can add new members using the "+ Add team member" button.
Of course you can also edit oder remove existing members.

Portfolio Overview

This section lists all Portfolio issues that are in the status category "in progress". If the standard workflow of agile hive is used, which reflects the safe methodology 1 to 1, issues would be presented with the following status:

  • MVP
  • Persevere

The WSJF, progress (in percent) as well as the planned, open and completed story points are visible line by line. The overall progress is shown in the last total line.

You can expand a Portfolio issue as soon as it is hierarchically linked to issues from the level below. The list is automatically sorted in descending order according to WSJF.

Portfolio Kanban Board


With the help of a Portfolio's Kanban board, the respective Portfolio is able to collect, analyse, review & prioritize Portfolio Epics and Enablers as well as link them with Strategic Themes.


A Portfolio Kanban board can be easily accessed via the Agile Hive menu in the top navigation bar. First click on the respective Portfolio in the Agile Hive Menu. This opens the Agile Hive Reports. Next, click on the Backlog icon or the Kanban icon in the left project sidebar.

Portfolio Epic Creation


The following Jira issue types for teams are delivered as standard with Agile Hive (of course, jira administrators can edit the standard configuration.):

  • Portfolio Epic
  • Enabler


To create one of the above issues, click on the "Create" button in the top navigation bar. Make sure in the "Create Issue" dialog that the desired Portfolio project is selected.

After the issue has been created, it can be found in the Funnel (Backlog view) of the Portfolio's Kanban Board.

Specific Portfolio fields:

  • Epic Owner
  • Job Size
  • User-business Value
  • Time Criticality
  • RROE

The Weighted Shortest Job First (WSJF) is calculated as follows:

WSJF Calculation

User-business Value + Time Criticality + RROE = Cost of Delay

Cost of Delay / Job Size = WSJF

Portfolio Roadmap


The Portfolio Roadmap offers an intuitive way to schedule your Epics show the projected duration of these issues.


You can access the Portfolio Roadmap from the Agile Hive View navigation.

  • First, move to the respective Portfolio project through the Agile Hive Navigation in Jira
  • This opens the Portfolio Reports
  • Click on the "Portfolio Reports" in the view Navigation and choose "Portfolio Roadmap"
