The GreenHopper Released Board gives you access to charts and release notes for the released versions of your projects.

On this page:

Viewing Charts for your Released Versions

 

When you release a version via GreenHopper, GreenHopper takes a snapshot of all of your charts (before any issue swapping is done). Charts are the only artifacts that are retained by GreenHopper after a release. You can view these charts at any time via the Released Board.

To view the charts for released versions,

  1. Log into JIRA.
  2. Click the 'Agile' menu in the top navigation bar and select 'Released Board' from the dropdown that displays. The 'Released Board' will display.
  3. Select your project from the project dropdown in the top left of the Released Board (next to 'RELEASED BOARD'), if it is not already selected
  4. Select 'RELEASE CHARTS' from the dropdown under the project dropdown, select the desired version from the 'View' dropdown and the desired chart from the dropdown next to it.
  5. The Released Board will refresh and display the chart specified (see screenshot below).
    • To view the chart in full screen (i.e. without the JIRA header displayed), click the 'Tools' menu and click 'Full Screen'.
    • To print the chart, click the 'Views' menu and click 'Printable'.
