Multiple advanced roadmap teams on one issue

Hi here,

Is there a way to assign more than one shared team on an issue. I only see the opportunity to add just a single team.

Or is this something to be mentioned to Atlassian as a feature request?


I hope someone can help me with this problem.

Hi @marc_koppelaar - we don't have any plans in the short term to allow for multiple teams assigned to a single issue. Could you please tell me a little about how you'd use this feature in your business?

Hi Pete,

On many of our global initiatives we have a team set to execute this, but in cases we need central teams from supporting departments from within our organization to participate to execute work for this initiative.

These are more ad-hoc or small pieces of work that they have to execute. So these teams or members of these teams are not allocated within the roadmap of these initiatives.

Because all related work might not yet been set in Epics, Stories, etc..., to be able to assign this to a team.

From management perspective we want to see which supporting teams are requested to participate on initiatives.

But we want these teams to know that they need to participate. So we have setup shared teams for this matter, but we want to be able to set more than one team to an initiative.

Off-course we could use custom fields or components (per project, very administrative work) for this. But the teams option from advanced roadmap would be preferred as we want to start to use the capacity of the team option as well in the near future.

Hi, this would be incredibly helpful for us as well.  I see the system can assign multiple teams if it pulls in from the source correctly, but I cannot do it manually.  We are in the same situation where epics can be shared by multiple teams, and we would like the stories they are working to link to that epic.

I created a suggestion at Atlassian support as well.

I agree with the comments above.  We were under the impression that Advanced Roadmaps would allow us to create a "portfolio" view of our Engineering group's work.  In many cases, a single "initiative" is large enough to have multiple teams within our Engineering group working on it, and it would be advantageous to see all of this in a single plan/roadmap vs. several different plans for each team.  Being able to auto-schedule the initiative work across multiple teams is exactly what we thought Advanced Roadmaps would do for us.  I'm willing to discuss this further if it would help.  Thank you!

Agreed & thanks for raising the suggestion @marc_koppelaar -

It would be great if Jira Roadmaps supported capacity management on the individual level. I work at an agency and some of our staff have to chop and change across multiple projects over the course of the month.

Please delete.
