What are scenarios in my plan?

This page refers to the advanced planning features that are only available as part of Jira Cloud Premium and Enterprise.

We have a separate section for documentation about the project timeline that’s included in Jira. Go to the documentation for the project timeline in Jira.


The process of planning large pieces of work can involve assumptions that can each cause a ripple effect in your plan. The Scenarios tool helps you to plan for and assess the impact of possible outcomes by mapping out different “what if” versions of your plan.

Create alternate versions of your plan using scenarios in Advanced Roadmaps for Jira Software Cloud.

Find out how to enable scenarios on your plan.

Your plan is a sandbox environment meaning that any changes you make won’t be committed back to your Jira issues until you choose to do so.

How do I save changes in my plan?
