I can trigger a build from a JIRA release, but I actually want to deploy the release. Of course, I could add the deployment tasks to the build job, but that circumvents the use of the deployment plan. Since it seems that deployment plans are the Future, surely there is a way to use these from the JIRA release?
You can configure triggers in your deployment plan environments to automatically deploy when a build is successful. So you could get JIRA to trigger a build and get that build to trigger the deployment to an environment, e.g. the first environment in your deployment pipeline.

Thanks Mike - but this means that you can't use automatic builds, as they will then trigger the deployment.
The work around that seems best is the use automatic builds with a "dummy" manual stage, so the builds complete all the real work, but pause rather than completing. A JIRA release can then select that build to finish - with a deployment plan containing an automatic trigger as you suggest.
However, I'm sure Atlassian have plans to make this integration a little tighter - rather than requiring a work around - is there an issue we can watch to track progress on this?
