One "Project" or Many with bit bucket integration

When setting up our backlog what are the pro's and con's of multiple Projects in jira? We have bitbucket and Jenkins and we want to fully integrate the capability for tracibility and versioning. Our team of architects believes separate Projects by Products is cleanest but I'm concerned about having multiple Projects because often times when we release, we push out 2 to 3 Products into one release. I believe having 4 Projects (for our 4 products) requires the PO to write stories in different backlogs. Thoughts?

You will have to write different stories but doesn't it make sense because they are for different products?

And having stories in different projects doesn't mean they cannot go into the same backlog. You can have a single board for all those projects if it is the same scrum team that is working on it. Boards belong to the teams, not to the project.

There is no disadvantage in terms of the integration as well. In the end, it depends on your process because JIRA can handle both approaches.
