View Sprints on Advanced Roadmaps

I've been trying to make the sprints show on the plan timeline, like in the screenshot below, but it is not working. 

Understanding sprints | Advanced Roadmaps for Jira Data Center and Server  3.29 | Atlassian Documentation

I've checked other posts in the community and the instructions at but it didn't work.

Hi @Andre Franchini,

Have a look at the issue sources of your plan through plan settings (the cog next to your plan's name) -> Issue sources.

Make sure that you are importing issues into your plan from a scrum board, not a project or a filter. If that is not the case, update your issue sources to your scrum board instead.

Next, under view settings group your issues either by sprint or team to display sprints on the timeline. An alternative may be to switch the views selector (towards the top right of your screen) to sprint capacity management instead of basic view.

Hope this helps! 

Thanks @Walter Buggenhout _ACA IT_, but the issues were imported from a board originally. And when I change the view as suggested by you the sprints still don't appear on the timeline (as per my screenshot above). Not sure what else is missing. 

The board is a scrum board (not a kanban board) and your sprints are actually created from that very same board?

And the projects on your board are company-managed projects?

If you can answer yes on both those questions, can you share a screenshot of your issue source configuration and the scope view of your plan?

Yes @Walter Buggenhout _ACA IT_, we use scrum boards and the sprints are created from this board. The projects are 'company-managed software'.

Apparently, all your issues are unassigned (so not linked to a team). And maybe your teams are not assigned to a board either (an association you can define on the teams page in your plan).

Could you verify if your sprints start popping up after you associate issues with a team?

I am having the same issue of not being able to see the sprints in the timeline. I have all the setup :

1) Issue source is associated with a board

2) Issues are assigned to team members

3) Team assigned to a board

4) Board is a scrum board and sprints are created from the board

5) My view settings: Grouped by Team or Sprint and Show capacity on timeline is selected

I still do the see  the sprints in the timeline. What am I missing?

Are you on Cloud, or DC? As the link pertains to DC.

Yes, I had a look @Curt Holley but after making the capacity visible and grouping by teams I still don't see the sprints in the timeline. What else am I missing?

@Andre Franchini Have you associated each team with their board as an issue source?

@Walter Buggenhout _ACA IT_ Hi Walter!

I got a quick question - the Issue Source needing to be A board - is that documented somewhere?

Got a client which faced the same issue and I found the solution here with you.
