I'm currently processing issues in Jira and I'm working on a story specifically. This story contains mostly just (sub-)tasks and essentially no bugs, considering it is a new project.
There is this field named Fix Version/s and I mostly interpret this as a bug-related field.
However, would it also be considered the norm to also use this for new projects with no bug-type issues? For instance, setting the Fix Version/s to 1.0 for the very first release? Or would it be better to just not insert a value for this field at all, unless facing a bug-type issue?
Hello @Alain Bressers
FixVersion is a very important Jira field for new & existing projects both. Basically, your whole release management (if done via Jira) depends on this field. In the project admin section, you can release / archive version thus manage your releases. Using this field everyone in the project team is on the same page in terms of release deadlines and previous releases thus this field is critical.
Please read this document - https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira064/managing-versions-720412374.html
@You can use issutype for example (Epic,story task, subtask...) and use fix version/s
and add your fix version/s list(1.0, 2,0 and so on) for the field fix version/s
for Bug issue type: we have another system field for version( Affects version/s) you can use it in the bug screen.
I think this is best practice.
I know this field is important, but the name fixVersion does not fit for Agile Epic/Story usecase.
I'm looking forward to be able to rename or use another version field, something like Target version for ex.
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
