Viewing Issues and Task timelines on the Roadmap?

I love the new Next Gen version of the Roadmap to view timelines and the full rollup of Epics, but is there a way to view the timelines for the Issues and/or Tasks within the Roadmap as well? View of the sum of the whole rather than just the high level. Is there a way to do this within a dashboard as a workaround if not on the Roadmap? Thanks!

Hello @Kelsie Ross

Unfortunately, the Next Gen Roadmap does not display the timeline for issues underneath Epics.

To see this level of detail you would need to use Portfolio for Jira though there are documented limitations when using Portfolio for Jira and Next Gen projects.

  • Parent-child relationship: If you try to save a story to epic relationship in Portfolio, it won’t be properly stored in next-gen.

  • Sprints: Portfolio doesn’t load sprints coming from next-gen boards.

  • Assigning issues from Portfolio won’t work in next-gen boards.

  • Story point estimates: You won’t be able to commit story point estimates to Jira if you’re issues are next-gen.

  • Time tracking: You can still set time estimates in Portfolio but they won’t show in Jira.

  • Issue type mapping: You next-gen project issue type will all implicitly be mapped to the story hierarchy level unless you fix that in the Portfolio hierarchy configuration.

  • Target dates: You can use target dates in Portfolio, however, if you commit them to Jira, the changes won’t be reflected in your next-gen roadmap.

@Danny : Is there any plan to introduce a timeline for issues underneath an Epic. (Task stories). Our user would really need this. Is there maybe a Jira Service Desk ticket where we can vote? Is there also a plan to show Subtasks on Roadmaps as well?

@Danny : Do you have any feedback regarding my post? Users would really need this without upgrading to the Jira Software Premium and Enterprise.

We are evaluating Jira right now - and it would be a must have for us as well.

I totally's urgently needed!

To have all stories or task starting with the EPIC startdate, independant from the stories' or tasks' actuall dates (as it semms to me until now), doesn't make any sense.

At least the display of the correct beginning would help a lot.

  • Yes, to be able to view an Epic's child issues with their start and end dates in the same Epic timeline would be big help to us.  It seems like you're nearly there; the child issues expand already, just need to color the timeline based on each issue's start and end dates.  The "Start date" is already a default field for all issue types afaict.

Same here, we also need this feature. Thank you! 

It's a shame that no one from the Atlassian team seems to feel responsible for any answer regarding an update...

Hey, they work day and night on it - and have simply no time to answer ;)

Hi @Robin Berger and @Jeff you can vote on the suggestion here

Same issue during evaluation process, this is really needed, basic and would just kill the PM activity from this tool very quickly...

Jira is traditionally for Agile development, not waterfall. 

I recommand you use "multi-sprint" (admin shuld allow this feature)

It is not convenient to use but useful

1) https://{your account}

   => multi-sprint?  set "on"

2) https://{your account}

    => backlog and sprint  set "on"
