Do you want to share your Jira Product Discovery roadmap with your customers but need to keep some items hidden? Whether an idea is too technical, an internal improvement, or a secret, sometimes you need to hide individual tickets on the roadmap. Here's a simple way to do it using Jira Product Discovery and Released (released.so).

Step-by-Step Guide to Hide Items on Your Roadmap

  1. Add a Custom Checkbox Field

    • First, add a custom checkbox field to your Jira Product Discovery project.

    • Let's name it “Hide from public roadmap.”

  2. Create a Filter in Released Roadmap

    • Add a filter in your Released Roadmap using the following JQL:

      “Hide from public roadmap” = 0 OR “Hide from public roadmap” is EMPTY

  3. Publish Your Roadmap

    • Once you have set up the filter, publish your roadmap.

Understanding the JQL Filter

The JQL filter checks if the “Hide from public roadmap” field is not checked (0). If it’s checked, it would equal 1. However, Jira Product Discovery does not support a default value for the checkbox custom field.

This is why we add a second condition. If a checkbox was never checked, the field value will be EMPTY. Therefore, we need to check whether the field is 0 or EMPTY.

Conclusion

It might sound complicated, but it’s quite simple. Once set up, you can easily show and hide items on your public roadmap directly from Jira Product Discovery. This way, you can share your progress with customers while keeping certain items confidential.

By following these steps, you can manage your public roadmap efficiently while maintaining control over what information gets shared
