Track releases 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.


Once you add a release to your plan, Advanced Roadmaps adds an icon to the top of your timeline. A green icon means that a release is on schedule while red icons indicate that a release is off-track. Releases that contain issues scheduled by sprint dates will show as off-track if the sprint ends after the release date. If you have multiple releases happening at once, Advanced Roadmaps adds a number above the icon.

Select a release icon above your timeline to see you a high-level overview of that release. Use the left or right arrow at the top of the window to quickly jump between releases.

In this window, you can also select:

  • the Highlight on timeline check box to extend either a red or green line down your timeline.

  • Filter by issues included in this release or

Track cross-project releases

From the timeline view, Advanced Roadmaps treats cross-project releases the same as a single-project release. However, when Advanced Roadmaps shows a cross-project release on your timeline, it will always have a number displayed above it because, to Advanced Roadmaps, there are two releases scheduled on that date: the cross-project release and the final single-project release.

For this reason, when you select the release icon to open a flyout window, you’ll see both the cross-project release as well as any single-project releases:
