Jira Automation docs have moved

All content related to Jira Cloud Automation, previously under the Automate your Jira processes and workflows section, have moved to the new Cloud Automation docs.

Go to Cloud Automation documentation | Why did we do this?

Configure the auto-scheduler 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 roadmap that’s included in all Jira Software plans. Go to the documentation for project-level roadmaps in Jira Software.


Those with Advanced Roadmaps Administrator access can configure which fields the auto-scheduler has permission to overwrite, and whether to only auto-fill empty fields or all fields in a plan. 

The auto-scheduler only schedules issues with an estimation assigned. Unestimated issues that have sprint, release, or team values will not be overwritten regardless of these auto-schedule settings.

To change the Auto-scheduler settings:

  1. Select the Auto-schedule button from the plan view.

  2. Adjust what you would like the Auto-scheduler to include or exclude from your plan.

  3. When you’re ready, use Preview results to begin the auto-scheduling process. Learn more about using the auto-scheduling tool on the Auto-schedule issues on your Advanced Roadmaps timeline page.
