How do I make "start date" and "end date" of issues under epics visible on roadmap?


I cannot make "start date" and "end date" of issues under epics visible on roadmap...

With the default setting, Issue does not have "start date" and "end date" properties, but I can add them by changing the default settings.

Once I have added those properties, however, those are still invisible on roadmap...

Is it impossible? Or only possible with premium roadmap???

The image below from shows that stories under epics' "start date" and "end date" are visible on roadmap...

Hello @Nobuhiko Muramori

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

When using the Roadmap on a next-gen project, currently, it's not possible to show the date range for child issues, it will only appear for Epics.

There is a feature request suggesting the implementation of such ability:

Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates about the feature.

As you mentioned in your question, the option is available for the Premium version of Jira that contains Advanced roadmaps. For more information, please check the article below:


Hello @Angélica Luz ,

Thanks a lot for your kind reply!

I'm looking forward the update.

@Angélica Luz how do you even set start and end dates for epics? I don't see the fields

is it only possible to see Story Level Gant lines on roadmap in advanced roadmaps?

In classic projects, this is actually a 5 step process from a stock standard setup AND you need premium (not just paid standard):

  1. Settings > Screens > Configure the Default Screen (or relevant)
  2. Add Start date and Due date to the screen
  3. Settings > Issue Layout
  4. Drag Start date / Due date to Context fields
  5. Plans > Create plan

Hello @Celine Hau,

Thank you for reaching out to Community!

You can add the Start and End date by editing the fields directly in the Epic or dragging its left and right edges to adjust directly in the Roadmap. 

Date ranges: Hover on an epic to view its date range. Drag its left and right edges to adjust the date range, or click the epic to open it and edit its details.

Also, make sure that on Project settings > Issue types > Epic that the fields were added to the context fields.

Can't see the graphic as it is fuzzy.

Thank you @Angélica Luz dragging the edges works now. I don't think it was there before. Will take a look at the fields too.

Colin, click on the picture itself and it will pop out in almost full screen.

Hi everyone @Celine Hau , 

I am working with classic projects. While we see Start Date and End Date, actually we use our own defined personalized fields like "Fecha de Inicio" and "Fecha de Fin". 

I configure them in Roadmaps but they´re still not showing the graph/lines to the right.


Any ideas?

Forget it....I found the settings...


Thank you.

Quick question, how did you set up the PROE line in your roadmap? It looks like it's grouping the Epics. I'd appreciate if you could show me how to configure it and how it works.


Hi Romina, 

You need to configure the roadmap. If you have it already.




Also while you are creating it prompts you to add a filter wich will feed the roadmap. 

I hope this was what you were asking.
