Add a dependency in Advanced Roadmaps

This page refers to Advanced Roadmaps, which is a cross-project planning tool only available as part of Jira Software Cloud Premium and Enterprise.

We have a separate section for documentation about the project timeline that’s included in all Jira Software plans. Go to the documentation for project-level roadmaps in Jira Software.


There’s a few different ways to add a dependency to issues in your plan in Advanced Roadmaps.

Create a dependency on your timeline

The quickest way to create a dependency is using the drag and drop method. With your timeline visible, select an issue’s dependency badge icon next to its timeline bar, and drag it to the schedule bar of the issue to which you want to link it, as shown in the picture below.

Alternatively, select the dependency badge icon to open a menu that allows you to manually create the dependency.

Create a dependency in the Dependency report

You can also create a dependency from the Dependency report view of your plan.

Choose the Add dependency button beneath the Review changes button, and configure your dependency in the menu that appears. When you’re done, select Add.
