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.
I totally agree...it'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.
Jira is a powerful tool that helps teams to plan, manage, and report on their work. We love using Jira, especially for its ability to track issue progress. But how to monitor the...
