Roadmaps for Jira Work Management projects

The timeline feature in Work Management projects is not as full-featured as the roadmap in software projects.  For one, tasks do not roll-up to their parent epics.  There does not seem to be a method to group tasks together using versions either.  Compare:

I thought I was going to be clever and create a "master" project for a team where they could view nice roadmaps for their projects.  Nope, roadmaps only work if the issues are in the current project only.

I'm guessing there is no other work-around.

It feels like JWM projects are a little half-baked.  I already have users asking if they can just use the competing product that we migrated them away from.

To be clear, the board filter only contained one project, the JWM project.  It did not contain issues from the "master" project where the board resides.

Hi Brandon,

Jira Work Management is a very new product and is continuing being improved upon. The Timeline is a different tool than the Roadmap tool, but the Atlassian folks are continuing to upgrade it and make it better. 

Yes, it's clear that it is a work in progress.  It's a bit frustrating that even though we pay for the full Jira Software platform that we can't make use of some of those features.  In fact, in a certain way, some things are harder for us because I'm not allowed to grant our users the ability to create JWM projects.

Considering that function didn't even exist until a couple of months ago, I don't believe there was a price increase that was charged for this functionality. 

You are missing the point entirely.

I, as an administrator for a Jira Software instance, have less control over how my users are able to utilize JWM templates compared to an admin of a JWM only instance.

You're right - I don't understand that point at all. That was nowhere in your question - you are comparing apples with oranges between Jira Software projects and Jira Work Management projects.
