Schedule issues in your plan according to releases

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


Along with scheduling issues by sprints or set dates, you can schedule issues based on the release to which it’s assigned.

  1. Select Plan settings from the left side navigation.

  2. In the Scheduling tab under the Inferred dates section, choose which dates you’d like your plan to auto-populate when issues don’t have start and end dates. Choose from:

    1. None

    2. Sprint dates

      1. For issues that are part of a team-managed project, sprints must be enabled in that project. Find out how to enable sprints in team-managed projects.

    3. Release dates

Once enabled, you can schedule issues according to the release dates the issues are assigned to a release, but have no start or end date. From here, you can then manually adjust an issue’s dates without changing its release assignment. However, if you move an issue beyond the release date, your release will fall off-track and the icon will turn red.

In order to use this setting, releases in your plan need to be scheduled using Fixed dates. If your releases uses As soon as possible, After all issues are completed, or Relative to a previous release as a start or end date, the schedule bar fades out indicating that it can’t be determined.

The Start date and Due date fields will have a R lozenge next to them, as shown below:
