Combine several JWM projects into one timeline.

Hello, we have different teams and one separate JWM project for each team.

- The marketing team has access only to marketing tasks + their own timeline.
- The sales team has access only to sales tasks + their own timeline.
- etc.

As the manager of all teams, I would like to have something like a master board/project that combines all tasks and shows me all tasks in one timeline.
(the progress of all projects, a timeline that contains all projects)

Is this possible? 

Thank you.

Expanding on @Fabian Lim advice....another option would be to upgrade to Jira premium, that way you get Advanced roadmaps, which can easily achieve what you are after.

Advanced roadmaps is a similar beast to Big Picture but is built by Atlassian (and is much easier to use). Premium gives you many other advantages including unlimited automation (not to be underestimated ), but it is a serious investment ($$$) beyond Standards price point.

Jira Pricing - Monthly and Annual Subscription Cost per User ( 

thank you to all. this is exactly what we are looking for. all your suggestions fits our needs. we have decided to start with "JIRA Advanced Roadmaps" because it looks like the easiest to use. lets see if we will meet any limits :)

Hi, @Sergej Dubowik.  I assume you may already know this, but what you are describing is usally called project portfolio management (or, PPM).  There's already some great info. and connections here for one product, BigPicture, and Advanced Roadmaps. But there are lots of things you may want to consider besides costs. And yes, it is possible.  But most people will tell you Jira "out of the box" lacks some of the things you may need for PPM (which is why they offer Advance Roadmaps, which was previously called "Portfolio").

In addition to BigPicture and Advanced Roadmaps, the are a number of other solutions you may wish to consider based on your needs (and budget). This search will show you more of the tools you may wish to consider (I emboldened the key elements of the search).

Best of luck to you. I hope this helps,

P.S. Full disclosure, my company's products (Structure and Structure.Gantt) will show up in the search results — but so will many others.

Hi @Sergej Dubowik:

There are a lot of plugins available in the marketplace that will meet your needs, but I would recommend Big Picture which is the plugin that we  use: 

You can create a program that combines multiple Jira projects and build a hierarchy such that when you expand your project, all the tasks under will expand in a gantt chart view.

Taking into account your requirements, BigPicture/BigGantt seems to be a good match! So let me add just a few words about the plugin. It’s a comprehensive tool that supports project management in every phase, helps to plan, manage and track the projects. 

Moreover, the plugin allows users to create a defined collection of tasks based on a combination of multiple Jira projects, Jira Boards, or filters and display them all on the roadmap. The setup's flexibility ensures that a Box can be configured to contain exactly the tasks you need to fit your work, using narrowing down JQL Filter (limiting it to, e.g., epics only).

If you have any other questions or requirements, please let me know. 

Have a nice day,
