What is the roadmap?

The Roadmap view in Jira Software is the same for both company-managed projects and team-managed projects, aside from how to enable it and troubleshooting information.

The roadmap is where you can create, manage, and visualize your team's issues. Roadmaps are useful for planning large pieces of work several months in advance and planning large groups of stories across different sprints.

Learn more about the benefits of roadmaps.

The roadmap comes with the following features:

A company-managed roadmap, consisting of team avatars, epic bar, dependency dropdown, time dropdown, and child issues.
  1. Filter by assignee, status category, versions, label, or issue summary: Use the assignee, status, versions, label, or text filters to specify which issues display on your roadmap. The filters automatically appear when you add an assignee to an issue, create more than one type of issue, or add a label to an issue on your roadmap. The text field is always available and all filters apply to epics and child issues. Learn more about filters on the roadmap.

  2. View settings: Display All, Complete or Incomplete epics. Then, choose to hide or show your epics' dependencies and progress on the roadmap.

  3. Timeline: Change the zoom level of your roadmap to view upcoming weeks, months, or quarters.

  4. Schedule bars: Each bar represents how long your tasks are scheduled to take. The sprints associated with the board are listed at the top of the roadmap along with the months. To see the exact dates of an epic, hover over its schedule bar. Sprints that have both start and end dates, and are associated with the board will be listed at the top of the roadmap, along with the months. Learn how to display the date range of your epics on the roadmap.

Schedule bars for child issues are only currently available for scrum teams.

There are a few ways to add issues. Learn how to add issues to epics from the roadmap.
