Unless otherwise noted, the roadmap view in Jira Software is the same for both company-managed and team-managed projects.
The roadmap view is valuable for creating and planning long-term projects. It visualizes data from your issues in a Gantt chart so that you can manage your team's work within a single project.
Roadmaps can only show issues from one project
Cross-project planning is only possible in Advanced Roadmaps, which is included with Jira Software Premium and Enterprise. Learn more about how Advanced Roadmaps helps you plan across multiple teams.
1. Issues list
The column on the left side of your roadmap shows the issues in your plan. Parent issues have child issues nested underneath them.
The default parent issue type in Jira Software is Epic, which is what we use in this documentation. However, this value changes based on what your administrator configures as the parent issue type. For example, if your project uses Feature as the parent issue type, you’ll see Create Feature.
Each issue shows the following information:
Issue type icon
Progress (if enabled; parent issues only)
Issue status (child issues only)
Issue assignee (if applicable)
2. Timeline section
Today line - The current point in the space-time continuum.
Timeline bars - Each bar corresponds to an issue and shows how long it’s expected to last. As of right now, the timeline bars for child issues are only available when working with Scrum teams.
Timeframe markers - All projects show Dates along the top. Scrum plans also show active Sprints.
Dependency lines - These lines show that one issue must be completed before the next can begin. This helps give your project plan structure and defines the order of tasks.
3. Side info panel
Select an issue on your roadmap to open the side info panel. This view lets you make changes without leaving the roadmap.
