Role required: scrum_release_planner, scrum_sprint_planner, scrum_story_creator, scrum_admin

Procedure

    OptionAction
    From overall story backlog
    1. Navigate to Agile Development > Backlog > All Stories.

    • Navigate to Agile Development > Backlog > Release Backlog.
    • Click Adjust Product Rank related link.
  2. Select a Product for which you want to adjust the rank.
  3. Click OK.

Result

The Product rank field in the backlog list shows the adjusted ranks for the selected product. Any gaps in the story ranks are removed. For example, if there are three stories in backlog ranked as 1, 2, and 4, it adjusts the ranks as 1, 2, and 3.
Adjusting a rank does not:
  • list the ranks sequentially, or in ascending order. For example, if there are three stories in backlog ranked as 1, 4, and 2, it adjusts the ranks as 1, 3, and 2.
  • consider the stories that are not ranked in the list.

What to do next

Based on the ranking, you can select stories for release planning.
