The status, category, owner, and resolution column are incorrect or blank when viewing the Risk Management or Issue Management portlets on the Risks, Issues and Changes tab of the General/Overview page.
By default, the Project name field is in the first column, and the Risk or Issue name is in the second column. So, it is very easy to click the wrong column. If you then make changes on the project instead of the risk, the data will not show.
Click the Risk name in the Risk column instead of the project.
SUGGESTION: Move the Project column to a different location in the portlet to prevent this mistake.
