Advanced Roadmaps is included with Jira Software Premium and Enterprise.

As part of Jira Software, Advanced Roadmaps gives you the power to create compelling and detailed plans and track progress towards your organization’s higher-level goals. By making a visual representation of your teams' planned work, Jira Software can be used to align teams and work, communicate with stakeholders, and gain greater visibility into your projects in Advanced Roadmaps; all while keeping track of current work in an ever-changing Agile environment.

At this time, Advanced Roadmaps does not support next-gen projects

Next-gen projects use a new, reimagined configuration which is not currently compatible with Advanced Roadmaps. Learn more about next-gen projects.

Sample plan, with issue details from Jira

The purpose of the sample plan above is to track the long-running initiative of mobile expansion. There are three teams working together, to complete this initiative as a whole — the iOS team, Android team, and Design team. The Mobile expansion product manager is using Advanced Roadmaps to plan and schedule work for these three teams, using relevant issue details that come from their individual boards in Jira.

What is Advanced Roadmaps?

Advanced Roadmaps can provide the ideal environment for realistic strategic planning, regardless of how many teams or people you have working towards your goals. Together with Jira, Advanced Roadmaps can provide a single source of truth for the current and future health of your initiatives.

The plans in Advanced Roadmaps make use of what-if scenarios, the data in your Jira instance, and an intuitive interface to help your team do the following:

  • View, plan, and manage initiatives efficiently
  • Create reliable forecasts and realistic schedules
  • Troubleshoot and manage releases in an ever-changing environment


Create a plan from existing data  Jira data, and roll up your epics into initiatives to get a cross-team and cross-project view of your work.


Auto-schedule issues to create a realistic schedule. To create this schedule, multiple variables are considered, including backlog priority, estimates, and dependencies — to generate a plan in a matter of seconds.


Manage teams and their velocity to avoid bottlenecks and over-utiliizing their capacity. Team and capacity management help you ensure the right people are available when needed.


Make fast prioritization and trade-off decisions, and instantly see the impact of such in your plan, so you can answer 'what-if' questions.


Set business goals and track progress to make sure the team is indeed executing on strategy, with everyone aligned to the same priorities.


Have a single source of truth with aggregated visibility across teams, so you can keep everyone on the same page.
