Auto-schedule issues on your plan

This page refers to the advanced planning features that are only available as part of Jira Cloud Premium and Enterprise.


The Auto-scheduler constructs a plan by balancing issue details based on your plan settings. You can then adjust the generated plan to meet your exact needs. Learn more about how the auto-scheduler schedules issues in your plan.

To auto-schedule issues in your plan:

  1. By default, the Auto-scheduler schedules all of the estimated issues in your plan. If you want to schedule certain issues, select them using the checkboxes in the Scope section.

  2. Navigate to Auto-schedule and configure the auto-schedule settings. Learn about the Auto-scheduler configuration options.

  3. Select Preview results to see suggested changes, as shown above. The schedule bars of auto-scheduled issues and their corresponding issue details will be shown with purple stripes. Hover on a field to compare the current values against the suggested changes. The number of auto-scheduled issues will depend on the hierarchy levels you've chosen for the plan.

  4. Select Accept changes to create your plan. The Auto-scheduler will not overwrite any issues that are in a sprint that’s currently active.

  5. Make your changes, then select Review changes.

Your plan is a sandbox environment meaning that any changes you make won’t be committed back to your Jira issues until you choose to do so.
