Roll-up values 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.


A big problem for planners is that what you plan isn’t always what ends up happening. Instead of forcing you to manually update values of parent issues, you can tell Advanced Roadmaps to infer values such as dates, estimates, and sprint assignments of parent issues based on the child issues' values. In Advanced Roadmaps, this is referred to as a roll-up and can help keep your issues accurate as timelines change in your plan.

Rolling up dates is a calculation that only exists for planning purposes in Advanced Roadmaps. When you commit changes back to your Jira issues, this value won’t be saved. It only lives in Advanced Roadmaps.

Issues with rolled up values get a striped candy-cane pattern on their timeline bar, as shown below:

If the bar fades out in one direction, you have a partial roll-up in your plan. Learn more about partial rollups on the What are partial rollups in Advanced Roadmaps? page.

To roll up values of issues on your timeline:

  1. Navigate to the View settings menu of your plan.

  2. Next to Roll up, you’ll see two options:
    Others - this will roll up sprint assignments, releases, teams, and estimates to the parent issue
