Types of 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 has a separate permissions model from that found in the rest of Jira Software. However, administrators can automatically grant permissions in Advanced Roadmaps to users based on their Jira Software global permissions. Learn how to change permissions in Advanced Roadmaps based on Jira Software permissions.

To change your plan’s accessibility settings, you must have the GLOBAL_BROWSE_USERS permission, which is a global Jira Software permission. Learn more about global permissions in Jira Software.

The levels of access in Advanced Roadmaps are:

  • Advanced Roadmaps administrator

  • Advanced Roadmaps shared team management

  • Advanced Roadmaps user

  • Advanced Roadmaps viewer

Learn how to limit who can view your plan based on individual users or user groups.

Advanced Roadmaps administrator

Users with this permission can perform all administrative functions in Advanced Roadmaps, including accessing any private plans.

By default, Jira Software administrators are automatically given Advanced Roadmaps administrator access.

Advanced Roadmaps shared team management

Users with this permission can access global team management and edit teams that are shared across plans.

Advanced Roadmaps user

Users with this permission can create plans and view plans they have access to. For plans they can access, they can also edit their issue sources, edit any issues in the plans, and save these edited issue details in Jira Software. This is the minimum permission level required to share a plan as an image, a .csv, or as an embedded element.

Advanced Roadmaps viewer

Users with this permission can browse and view plans in read-only mode. They don’t have access to export a plan to an image, .csv, or as an embedded element. In Jira Software, they can also update parent links, teams, and target dates of issues.
