Advanced roadmaps cross-project

I am trying to use the Advanced Roadmaps cross-project functionality.  I have 2 jira projects (WD-xxxx & SYS-xxxx).  Each project has work that has to be coordinated into a single release due to code dependencies.  Each jira project also has its associated roadmaps plan (plan-WD, plan-SYS).  How do I create the dependency between the WB and the SYS releases so that it can be viewed as single release with in roadmaps.  I have gone through all the steps of setting up the cross-project release in each plan but I don't see the connection between the plans.  Am I confusing 'Jira Project' with actual 'Work Projects'? I am assuming I can have a cross-project release between 2+ Jira projects.  Thanks.

Jira projects are just containers, and they do not have to be related to actual projects. I often set up Jira projects based on systems for systemic organization of work and documentation, but you can use it anyway you want.

The reason you have issues is that you do not have an overall plan. Create a master plan with both projects so you can see the issues in both. In that plan, you create the cross project release. This way, you can also set dependencies between activities in both projects to make sure the timelines align.

I hope that helps?

Thanks Jimi.  That's helpful.

What @Jimi Wikman says......or if you want to create a Plan for just the release then create a filter or 2 to just filter in the issues associated with the relevant releases, then create the Cross project release in there. Thus creating a Plan especially designed for this piece of work.

JQL (along the lines of):

fixVersion in (Release WDxxx, Release Sysxxx)

Thanks for JQL Curt.
