Hi @yuna  - By default in Jira, releases (versions) belong to each project only (project specific).  Just like components.  In Portfolio for Jira, you can roll up your project's EPICs to Initiative, where you can use Initiative to associate with specific releases.  Those releases of Initiative can then act like cross projects releases.

In our env, our Initiatives are in a separate Jira project where all other DevOps projects roll up their EPICs to the Initiatives.  The releases in this separate project serve as the cross projects releases.

Best, Joseph

Hi @yuna

cross-project releases aren't a default Jira functionality.

You can work with them in Portfolio for Jira or you need to use some of the apps on Atlassian marketplace that solves this problem


Are you trying to get only the list of all releases in the instance or use releases across multiple projects?

Hi @Nikki Zavadska _jexo_ thank you for answering, i am trying to use one release across multiple projects. 

Hi @yuna ,

I might be late with my answer but I would like to suggest another alternative which can solve your problem.

We have created Release management add on for Jira data centre and Jira cloud which helps to create cross-project versions in Jira. It also can help to synchronize versions between multiple projects and compose packages of multiple versions.

Out of the box, there are a few more handy features, such as:

  • Release Reports
  • Automated Release Notes+ Integration with Confluence
  • Custom version workflow 
  • Environments and deployment tracking.

Hope it will help you to automate daily release routines.
