Schedule issues in Advanced Roadmaps according to releases

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 timeline that’s included in all Jira Software plans. Go to the documentation for project-level roadmaps in Jira Software.


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

To infer dates from sprints or releases in your plan:

  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 Advanced Roadmaps to auto-populate when issues don’t have start and end dates. Choose from:

    1. None

    2. Sprint dates

    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:
