Disconnect Between Teams in Advanced Roadmaps vs Teams in People

There appears to be a complete disconnect between teams that are defined under People versus teams that are defined in Advanced Roadmaps.  Can someone confirm this? 

I would think that shared teams in Advanced Roadmaps would cross over and/or reference teams defined under People, but they seem to be distinct entities.  Are there any plans in the works to link the two?

Hi @jenna_magee ,

The short answer is yes - there are plans to link the two.

It's worth understanding the historical context here.... Advanced Roadmaps was previously known as Portfolio for Jira and was a 3rd party application. So the "Team" field that it introduced was not a core part of Jira.

There is now a "Team" concept across Atlassian Cloud products (see ) and we're planning on merging these two concepts. Unfortunately at the moment it's two early to say exactly when this is going to happen but is something we're looking at right now.

So what you're saying is completely accurate that at the moment they are two distinct entities and obviously that's something that needs to be addressed.

If you have any thoughts on how you'd like to see these concepts come together (i.e. what your expectations of what you'll be able to do - both with respect to Advanced Roadmaps plans and throughout the rest of Jira) then we'd love to hear them!



Thanks @Dave !  I figured the reasoning would be along those lines and appreciate the confirmation.  I definitely have some ideas about how the Team concept across the entire Atlassian suite could be very powerful.  I'll need to put some more thought around it.

Hi @Dave are you able to elaborate on this and give us an update?  We use our own custom "Agile Team" field, which predates both the Portfolio "Team" field and the Atlassian Cloud "Team" field in our instance. Now we're trying to figure out how to implement teams in the context of Advanced Roadmaps. If you are able to share any pointers, we'd be most grateful. Thanks!
