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 timeline 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.

To view release information on your plan, you need to have the timeline bars showing on your plan or have the Releases column visible. Learn how to show or hide your timeline bars.

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:
