Issues Timeline

The Issues Timeline template provides a timeline for managing issues and versions within your Jira projects on a timeline, with swimlanes organized by environment.

This template is particularly useful for the following scenarios:

  • Deployment Scheduling: This template is ideal for planning and visualizing the schedule of deployments (for instance Deployment Request issue types) across various Environments. It helps teams coordinate release times, ensuring that deployments are staggered to minimize disruption and manage dependencies.

  • Maintenance Window Coordination: By using the timeline with swimlanes by Environment, teams can plan and view upcoming maintenance activities. This visualization helps avoiding conflicts, ensuring that maintenance across different Environments doesn't overlap, and that system availability is optimized.
