How can we add Start Date/End Date to Child Issues under an Epic?


Is it possible to add Start dates and End Dates to Child Issues that are under Epics?


Thank you,

Hi @Johnathon Sisounthone 

Yes, you may do that.  The field names are Start Date and Due Date. 

You could set those fields manually by putting them on your edit views, or update them automatically with automation rules, workflow, or scripting.  For some users, they cascade the values from the parent down to the children, and for others they do the opposite, rolling them up to the parent epic.

Best regards,


Hi @Bill Sheboy

Thank you. Is there a way to make the dates appear on my roadmap? The only dates that I am able to see on the roadmaps are Parent Epics.


Kind regards,


Not yet for the basic roadmaps, as with the standard version of Jira.  I believe their is a suggestion to make these visible for the child issues.

Is there another version of Roadmaps that would show the time bars of Child issues on the chart?

Yes, and you would need Jira Cloud Premier for that...which is a more expensive license level.  Please look here for details to see if that might meet your needs:

As an alternative, there may be marketplace add-ons which do this at lower cost, particularly if you do not plan to use the other features of Premier.
