What are 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.


Releases in Advanced Roadmaps are referred to as Fix versions in Jira Software. Learn more about versions in Jira Software.

Releases in Advanced Roadmaps essentially function as large target deadlines for sections or versions of your work. In the rest of Jira, these are referred to as Fix versions.

You can set a release to happen on a set date, or after all of the issues assigned to it are completed. The former is recommended for teams that release with regular cadence (every two weeks) since any issues that aren’t completed can be bounced to the next release. For teams that have irregular releases, Advanced Roadmaps can give you a projected release date when you define a release based on completed issues.

Advanced Roadmaps uses two different types of releases: single-project and cross-project. As the name implies, a single-project release is tied to one project, while a cross-project release aligns the dates of multiple projects. Learn more about single-project and cross-project releases

Navigate to Releases view to view and manage your releases. This list will include any set releases that you've created in Jira Software in your plan. Before planning with releases, they need to be enabled in your project.
