Roadmap Planner inserts a new planner after edit?

I'm running a trial in Confluence Cloud and can't get Roadmap Planner to work correctly.

When trying to edit an existing Roadmap on a page, Insert button inserts a new Roadmap Planner to Page Properties section instead of updating the roadmap which was being edited.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Add new page using Product Requirements-template.
  2. Add some content, including Roadmap Planner and publish the page.
  3. Go to Edit mode and edit the content of Roadmap Planner. RP editor shows Insert and Cancel buttons at bottom right corner of edit dialog.
  4. Hit Insert. A new RP appears in Page Properties while the RP which you started to edit stays intact.

This is not an answer but I can confirm that roadmap planners always do an insert even when going into edit mode (clicking the pencil) in Confluence Cloud.

I've tried this for both:

  • Using the roadmap planner object that gets generated with the Product Requirements template
  • Creating a new /roadmap planner 

It will always produce an Insert button and adds the updated roadmap planner to the top of the document and keeps the previous version where it was sitting in the Milestones section of the document.

If you're regularly updating roadmaps, this is really painful.

I've discovered that bug only happens after a certain amount of time. To be clear: the button and roadmap title text always say "Insert". 

  • If I make a quick update to the roadmap and click "Insert", it updates the roadmap
  • If I take a while to make changes and click "Insert", it creates a new roadmap at the top of the document within the page properties.

I haven't done an experiment to see that that time threshold is.

Hi there, I have used the /planner function in Confluence today and can confirm that indeed a new planner is inserted every time it is edited instead of updating the original planner object.

@Jouni Karppinen can you try going into edit mode and then /jira roadmap?


When I do this, it shows the roadmap from JIRA and updates every time.

@Marjorie this is for roadmap planner objects, not the JIRA roadmaps
