Jira Automation docs have moved

All content related to Jira Cloud Automation, previously under the Automate your Jira processes and workflows section, have moved to the new Cloud Automation docs.

Go to Cloud Automation documentation | Why did we do this?

Set permissions 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.


Advanced Roadmaps uses two permissions models: Jira Software Global permissions as well as a Advanced Roadmaps-specific one which allows you to grant access to individual users on a per-plan basis. By default, those with Jira Software Administrator and System Administrator access also have Advanced RoadmapsAdministrator access. These permissions only apply to the individual plan, and will override any global settings.

In order to save any changes made to your roadmap back to your project in Jira Software, you need to have permission to edit that project, as defined by the global permissions. If you don’t, your changes won’t be committed, and will remain in the Review changes modal.

To manage your plan permissions within Advanced Roadmaps:

  1. From the Roadmap view, navigate to settings using the  next to your plan name > Configure.

  2. On the left sidebar, navigate to Permissions. You can grant view and edit permissions to individual users or groups, or make it visible to all Advanced Roadmaps users.

Permission types in Advanced Roadmaps
