Create a scenario 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.


Advanced Roadmaps gives you two starting points for new scenarios:

  • blank scenario will create a new scenario based on the data from your Jira Software issues. It will not include any unsaved changes in your Advanced Roadmaps plan.

  • copy of an existing scenario will inherit changes from the scenario of your choice.

Once you’ve created multiple scenarios, you can switch between them using the Scenario dropdown menu.

Create a scenario directly from your Roadmap:

  1. Choose Create scenario from the Scenario dropdown menu.

  2. In the modal that opens, name your scenario and choose a color for it. Any changes you make in this scenario will be displayed with flags in the color you select.

  3. Choose blank scenario or copy of a scenario, then select Create.

Create a scenario using the settings menu:

  1. From the Roadmap view, navigate to settings using the  next to your plan name > Configure.

  2. Choose Create scenario in the upper right of the screen. 

  3. Choose blank scenario or copy of a scenario, then select Create.
