JIRA roadmap not showing schedule bars


I'm using roadmap feature in a classic cloud JIRA project.

The EPICS are showing the schedule bar as shown in colour red but not the tasks.  All have start and due dates inserted.

Is this expected behaviour ?

Hi @andrew.edwards

Are you asking if it's normal for the Epic colour bar to be red but not the task bar? If so, this could be due to the way that you have the colouring set up. You can change it by "View settings" -> "Colour By" and configure it to what you'd like.

Hope that helps.

My menu of "View settings" has no "Colour by" chapter.

I see no answers for several months. It is sad.

Andrew asked - is expected for the tasks in an epic to not be visible on a timeline, whereas the start and due dates were inserted?
I have the same question.
I suppose it is a bug.

Expected: The tasks are visible on a timeline.

Actual: Tasks are not visible on the timeline, only epics are.

Could anybody help to fix the issue?

Seems I have found more. It is not an explanation of the failure. 

It is ridiculous, but Jira has this limitation.

I would be happy to hear I the limitation could be avoided.
