Browsing a Project's Versions

JIRA's Release report shows a summary of all versions in a project. These can be further filtered by released versions and unreleased versions, and you can search by text contained within a version.

The Release report is a visual representation of how your versions are progressing. Hovering over the progress bar in the Progress column will give you further details on the issues in the corresponding version. Selecting the version link in the Version column will display further detail on that version, as well as giving you the option to view release notes, and to release that version (providing you have the correct permission to do so).

To view a project's releases:

  1. On the top navigation bar, click the white triangle next to Projects. The projects dropdown will display.
    (tick) Tip: You can access your current project directly by simply clicking the Projects link instead of the triangle.
  2. Click the project you wish to browse. If the project is not displayed in the dropdown, click View All Projects, which allows you to view a list of all accessible projects on your JIRA site, and select your project from there.
  3. Click Releases in the project navigation sidebar. A list of versions for your project is displayed (see screenshot below).
    • If specified, the Start Date is used by the Version Report. This gives you a more accurate report in cases where you might plan a version many weeks (or even months) in advance, but not actually commence work until closer to the release date.

    • Click the link for a version to <view the release hub detail>.

    How do I view the issues associated with a prior release that has been released and issues are closed?

      Just use the Change Log link on the left - that gives you a list of all previously released versions with an expandable list of the issues included in that release (see Browsing a Project's Change Log), alternatively use JQL to search for issues according to a fix version.
