Troubleshoot warnings on your timeline 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.


As you schedule work for your teams, Advanced Roadmaps will warn you if there are any misaligned dates in your plan. This page discusses common causes of warnings, and how to resolve them.

Starts before parent

If you set dates for issues that don't align with the dates of their parent, Advanced Roadmaps will generate a warning highlighting the conflict, as shown below:

A warning that you may see in Advanced Roadmaps for Jira Software Cloud - Child issues start before parent

To resolve this, adjust your dates so that the child issues fall within those of the parent. This also applies when using sprint dates in the plan.

Target dates set beyond the due date

Depending on how your plan is configured, your plan view may also show Due dates that Advanced Roadmaps imports from Jira Software. If you set a target end date that extends beyond the assigned due date, Advanced Roadmaps will generate a warning, as shown below:

To resolve this, adjust the target end date or the due date.

Unresolved issue after target end date

Advanced Roadmaps will warn you when an issue in your timeline has already passed its end date.

To resolve this, update the status of the issue or its end date. If the unresolved issue is in progress, you'll be prompted to do one of the following:

  • Move the issue status back to TO DO

  • Add the issue to a different sprint

  • Reschedule the issue to a later end date
