We've been using Jira releases for a few years now and `fix version` and deployments really help with tracking what is getting released.

We are about to use `affects version` to track new bugs raised against a release version. Then updating `fix version` once engineers have deployed a fix for that version.

This will allow us to historically track when a bug affected a version and when that bug fixed a version.

The problem we're seeing is `affects version` shares the same values as `fix version` yet it is not shown within a version in releases.

Is there any way to display the `affects version` in the version release?

Are we doing this wrong?

Hi @Adam Lusted

Welcome to the community!

Affects versions and fixed versions are values that are picked up from the jira releases/versions in the project. So they are essentially the same, but used in different contexts.  In a bug you will use affect version that it was found and fixed version would be used to tag a new version where it was fixed. 

If you are asking about showing which tickets have an affected version, you can use a jql with a specific value of affected versions and display it in a dashboard/gadget
