Building and Viewing Roadmap Hierarchy in the Portfolio Level

You can build and view roadmap hierarchy in the portfolio level if your administrator has set the request type asset as the roadmap type.

To build and view roadmap hierarchy in the portfolio level:

  1. Open the portfolio page where you want to build roadmap hierarchy.
  2. Go to the Contents > Proposals/Projects/Assets tab, and click Add.

    The Add New Proposals/Projects/Assets window opens.

  3. In the Include Assets field, select the entities you want to include in the roadmap hierarchy.
  4. Click Add.

    Your selected entities are listed as assets in the Proposals/Projects/Assets tab.

  5. Go to the Roadmap tab.

    The system fetches the assets of the roadmap type from the Proposals/Projects/Assets tab to generate the roadmap hierarchy.

    The assets not of roadmap type are not included in the roadmap hierarchy.


    • By default, the roadmap hierarchy can have 5 levels in depth, displaying no more than 1000 requests along with their roadmaps. It allows more or less levels depending on how your administrator sets the parameter Using the Server Configuration Utility to Modify Server Configuration Parameters.

    • A request may have more than one roadmap, however, only the active and last updated roadmap is displayed in the roadmap hierarchy. If the request does not have an active roadmap, the right side of the request line is empty.
