Advanced Roadmaps lets you group issues on your timeline according to several different factors:

Group by assignees

Each assignee will be allocated a swimlane containing assigned issues. Any unassigned issues will be in the Unassigned swimlane.

To group issues by assignees, go to View settings on your plan and select Assignee from the Group by menu.

Group by projects

Each project will be allocated a swimlane containing its assigned issues.

To group issues by projects, go to View settings on your plan and select Project from the Group by menu.

Group by component 

Before you can group by components, they must be configured in Jira Software.

To group issues by components, go to View settings on your plan and select Component from the Group by menu. Select + Create group, enter a name, and then start typing to find the components to add to the group.

To delete a component group, go to Group by component in View settings, then select the delete icon next to the group you want to delete.

Group by teams

When you group issues by teams, issues will display in team-specific swimlanes. If you've associated the teams in your plan to issue sources, you can also show the overall capacity of these teams in the timeline. This can help you visualize how team-specific work is distributed across multiple sprints. See Showing capacity in the timeline for more information.

To group issues by teams, go to View settings on your plan and select Team from the Group by menu. Select the Show capacity on timeline checkbox to display the sprints associated to teams in the plan.

Group by sprints

When you group issues by sprints, the issues will be grouped and displayed into sprint-specific swimlanes. You can expand these swimlanes to view the issues for each sprint. If a sprint is shared by multiple teams, each team gets its own sprint swimlane and the capacity shown will only be for that specific team.

Grouping by sprint will automatically Roll-up values to the parent task. You can also choose to show the capacity for each sprint in the timeline.

To group issues by teams, go to View settings on your plan and select Sprint from the Group by menu. Select the Show capacity on timeline checkbox to display the sprints associated to teams in the plan.

Group by release

When you group issues by releases, issues will display in release-specific swimlanes. You'll see the release icon beside the release name followed by the project name.

Releases are ordered by release date followed by those without a date. If an issue isn't assigned to a release, it's grouped as Unassigned at the bottom of the plan.

To group issues by teams, go to View settings on your plan and select Release from the Group by menu. You can change release assignment by using the dropdown in the Release field on your timeline.

Group by labels

Before you can group by labels, they must be configured in Advanced Roadmaps.

To group issues by labels, go to View settings on your plan and select Label from the Group by menu. Select + Create group, enter a name, and then start typing to find the labels to add to the group.

To delete a label group, go to Group by label in View settings, then select the delete icon next to the group you want to delete.
