Advanced Roadmaps for Jira Software Cloud lets you combine issues from boards, projects, and filters to create an all-encompassing plan that spans multiple teams or your entire organization. So in order to create a plan, first thing to do is come up with Jira Hierarchy within your organization and link (Parent/Child) all the issues from top hierarchy to the lowest hierarchy.
