What are roll-ups 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 of parent issues based on those of the child issues. In Advanced Roadmaps, this is referred to as a roll-up.

From the View settings menu on your timeline, choose either option to infer a value:

This feature is currently rolling out to cloud customers. Your site may not reflect these changes, or you might not see it in your site just yet.

Rolling up dates is a calculation that only exists for planning purposes in Advanced Roadmaps. When you commit changes back to your Jira issues, rolled-up values are saved as a static number or text as if they’re manually set. This value stored in your Jira issue will not dynamically update as your plan evolves.

When a value is rolled up, Advanced Roadmaps will show an arrow next to the value of the rolled-up field:

This arrow indicates that a value in Advanced Roadmaps for Jira Software Cloud is inferred, or rolled-up.
