Create a cross-project release in your plan

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

We have a separate section for documentation about the project timeline that’s included in Jira. Go to the documentation for the project timeline in Jira.


To create a cross-project release in your plan:

  1. Select Releases from the view selector dropdown menu, then select Create cross-project release in the upper right of the screen. Find out how to navigate to your releases view.

  2. Name your release and choose the release you want to add. Then select Add release.

  3. Repeat to add as many releases as necessary.

  4. When you’re happy with your release, select Create and your new release will be added to the plan.

Cross-project releases are only used in Advanced Roadmaps and cannot be saved to your issues in Jira.

A cross-project release is a way to align multiple single-project releases, and is only used for planning purposes in your plan. They can’t be saved back to your Jira issues. When you save a cross-project release, only the single-project release associated with the teams in your plan will be updated.
