release notes customization


is it possible to customize the release notes with JIRA cloud? Or alternatively install a plugins that can generate release notes?

My understanding is that cloud installations are quite limiting in what you can do, but not sure what is possible and what is not. Is there any documentation on that?

I think this would best be solved by querying the API. You could use a script to CURL JIRA and poll data for issues in a released version.

Confluence has an add-on for generating Release Notes as a Page Blueprint.

I am not certain what exists for JIRA Cloud outside of these options.

You can get all the information you need via REST – 

project = DEV AND fixVersion = latestReleasedVersion() ORDER BY rank ASC

Great, we've already started doing that. Thanks for your response.

Can I ask, are you using the external API or are you using the Confluence JIRA Report Blueprint?

we are using the external API, similar to your example. I am not sure what the Confluence JIRA Report Blueprint does

Better PDF Exporter can generate release notes and its 100% customizable even in cloud deployments.


@ned stoyanov you may want to take a look at our Automated release notes app for Jira. It is extremely flexible in terms of the data it can collect from Jira & the format/look & feel of release notes it generates. 

Here is a quick showcase of sample release notes.
