A version has many moving parts. As an iteration manager, you need to be sure that everything is ready before you can release — issues are complete, code is committed, reviewed and merged, builds are passing, etc. The Release Hub in Jira Software can help you stay on top of everything when it's time to release a version. Each issue in Jira Software also has a Development panel that helps you see the development status of an issue at a glance.

Using the Release Hub

As described in Checking the progress of a version, the Release Hub is useful for seeing the status of a version at a point in time. It shows a summary and a breakdown of the issues in the version, grouped by status, so you can see if there's any remaining work for the release.

If you have Jira Software connected to your development tools, the 'Warnings' tab can also help you spot issues that could cause problems for the release. These include issues that should be in the release but haven't been merged (open pull requests), issues that haven't had code reviews, etc. Rather than spend your time hunting this information down, you can help your team sort these problems out as soon as they occur.

  1. Navigate to the project that your version is in.
  2. Click Releases > your desired version.

Checking the development status of an issue

If you need to deep dive into individual issues, the Development panel on each issue will show you its development status. This includes commits, builds, branches, pull requests, and more. For more information, see Viewing the development information for an issue
