This page refers to the advanced planning features that only available as part of Jira Software Cloud Premium and Enterprise.
We have a separate section for documentation about the project timeline that’s included in all Jira Software projects. Go to the documentation for project-level roadmaps in Jira Software.
There are two ways to update a parent-child relationship between issues in Advanced Roadmaps:
Drag and drop a child into its parent issue in the Scope section of your plan, or
Select multiple issues, then navigate to Bulk actions > Parent.
You can also define and adjust this relationship using the Parent Link field on the issue in Jira Software, assuming that you have it enabled on your site. If you don’t have this field in your issues, you’ll need to add it. Learn how to enable custom fields in Jira issues
You can only link an issue to a parent of the corresponding hierarchy level as configured in your plan. For instance, if you made a level called initiative which lives above epic, you can’t link a story to the initiative. You must first add the story to an epic, then that epic to an initiative.
Issues created in a team-managed projects can only be parented to the project they’re created in.
