Timeline (Roadmap) - cannot see assignee on the list or Gantt bars.

Steve Farrand January 18, 2024

I want to see EPIC assignee.  I can see child issues, but no name against the EPIC.

Hi @Steve Farrand

Welcome to the Atlassian community.

  1. Try clicking on the Epic to open it then press "Configure" on the lower right-hand side.
  2. Move the "Assignee" label to the "Description Fields" section if it's not there already. (See screenshot)
  3. Click Save.

Now, when you go back to the Timeline View, you should see an icon with the assignee's initial.

There was also a question like yours a while back.

Here's how they solved it using a similar method: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/Epics-Assign-an-owner/qaq-p/1661292

I hope this helps,

Thank you for the info. 
I did 1,2,3 and Timeline Epics still do not have assignee against Epic.
