Create and add teams 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.


The Team field is a custom field in Jira Software.

If you want to save this back to your Jira issues, you'll first need to add the Team field to the Jira screen. Learn more about this on the Enable custom fields used in Advanced Roadmaps in Jira page.

To navigate to the Teams page from your roadmap view, use the view selector menu as shown below:

Add a shared team

To add a shared team to a plan:

  1. In the Teams view, navigate to + Add team

  2. Select the Add existing shared team option, then start typing to find the team you’d like to add.

  3. Save your selection with the Add shared team button.

Create a team

All new teams in Advanced Roadmaps begin life as plan-only teams. Once you’ve set up the team to your liking, you can then convert it to a shared team. Learn how to convert plan-only team to a shared team.

To create a team in your plan:

  1. In the Teams view, navigate to + Add team

  2. Select the Create a plan-only team option, then fill out the following fields:

    1. Team name

    2. Associated issue source

    3. Team type

    4. Velocity (average capacity for this team)

    5. Iteration length

    6. Members

  3. When you’re happy with your team, select Create.

Your team will now be available in your plan. Any changes you make won’t be finalized until you save your changes in Jira.
