Show or hide dependencies on your timeline

This page refers to the timeline view in Jira Software and not Advanced Roadmaps, the cross-project planning tool only available as part of Jira Software Cloud Premium and Enterprise.

Unless otherwise noted, the timeline view in Jira Software is the same for both company-managed and team-managed projects.


Dependencies, also called Issue Links in other parts of Jira, allow you to show the order in which issues need to be done. If there’s a dependency between two issues, one must be finished before the next can begin.

In order to use this feature, a Jira admin needs to enable issue linking. The timeline can only show issues with the Blocks issue link type. Learn how to enable issue linking.


To show or hide dependencies on your timeline:

  1. From your timeline, navigate to the View settings menu at the top-right of your view.

  2. Under the More details heading, tick the Dependencies box.
