Adding the Road Map Gadget

The Road Map gadget shows versions which are due for release within a specified period of time, and a summary of progress made towards completing the issues in those versions.

    Is there a way to make this work in Confluence for an anonymous user and also keep the security on the JIRA project set to disallow anonymous access?

    Why does the roadmap display versions in reverse order than they are displayed in the versions page for the project, regardless of date? For example, within our implementation project, I rearranged the versions in alpha order because our versions our individual customer implementations. However, the roadmap gadget displays everything in reverse order in this gadget and support said that this was expected.  But, I don't see anything in the documentation that says that the gadget will reverse the versions.  Can you clarify in the doc?

    If no release date is set, version is not shown. Maybe a checbox to include those is needed ?

      +1 for this. I'd like to show the entire roadmap in Confluence, even for non-scheduled releases.

    Is there a way to have a kind of RoadMap, but with all unresolved issues, no matter which version? We have multiple projects with several versions each, and I'd like to have an overview of the delivery date and the number of unresolved issues.

    We have problem when trying to show more than 13 projects.

    Even number of results is set to 50 it still shows only 13 items.

    Is this known problem?

    Please, do updates as soon as possible.

    Because this is not good.

    I've no problem with just showing limited versions. But my problem is that I just want to show a few versions, i.e. the latest and ongoing work.
    As it is now I can't  change the order. I need to use like 50 or more to be able to see them. And it still "unusable" since I don't want to
    have them at the bottom...  (sad)
