Save changes made in your plan

This page refers to the advanced planning features that are only available as part of Jira Cloud Premium and Enterprise.


To save the changes made in your plan, you'll need the your plan administrator permission as well as permission to edit the project in Jira.

As you build your plan, edits to things in your plan like issues or Teams are held until you’re ready to update your issues. This allows you to explore different planning outcomes without effecting existing issues. When you’re ready, you can save edits which overwriting the data of the issues in your plan. Jump to the list of changes you might see in this screen.

Changes on this screen are listed according to the Issue key. If there’s multiple updates to an issue, the number of changes shows in the What changed column. Select the field in this column to view all of the changes associated with that issue.

To save your work so far, select the changes you’d like to save. To speed up the process, filter the issues in the Review changes modal.

Any change you choose not to save remains visible on this screen until you:

  • save it or

  • discard it by selecting the change, then Discard selected changes

Lastly, choose whether you want to send notifications to those watching your issues in Jira based on their Jira notification settings using the Send update notifications checkbox in the lower left corner.

When you’re ready, use the Save selected changes in Jira button to commit your changes.
