By default, dependencies in Advanced Roadmaps use the Blocks issue link type. To change this or create a custom issue linking type, a Jira Administrator will need to follow the instructions on the Configure Dependencies in Jira for Advanced Roadmaps page.

You can choose whether you want to work on dependent issues in order or at the same time. This is what Advanced Roadmaps refers to as sequential or concurrent dependencies. Sequential dependencies can’t be worked on at the same time, while concurrent ones can. This is true whether the issues are manually scheduled or auto-scheduled.

To change between sequential and concurrent dependencies:

  1. From the Roadmap view, navigate to settings using the  next to your plan name > Configure.

  2. Under Dependencies, select either sequential and concurrent dependencies.
