Create, edit, and delete a project overview

As of May 2024, Overviews have been combined with Plans for customers who have a Jira Premium and Enterprise license. Read more about this change on our community blog.

If you see the Plans tab at the top of your page, you can find documentation for this experience here: Head over to the documentation for Plans.

This page refers to the Overviews tool that’s found only in business projects for users with Jira Work Management or Jira Service Management Cloud Premium and Enterprise standalone licenses.

In order to create, edit, and delete an overview, you’ll need the view issue permission for each of the projects included in your overview.
