@Bill Sheboy : Can you advise

Hi @Ashish Saini 

Would you please post an image of your rule and the audit log, and describe what you believe is not working?

Thanks, and best regards,


Hi @Ashish Saini 

To back up a bit, what problem are you trying to solve by "My aim is to update the custom field with the latest relase version irrespective of it being linked or not "?  You can always see the last released version on the releases page.

Doing what you ask is not possible as you have tried in the rule.  If the issues are not already linked to the version, there is no way to determine if it is the last released version.  And the last released version is changing over time, so the value would become out of date as releases occur.  And, if you stored the last release version in issues, you would need to repeatedly update the issues...probably at least until they are closed/resolved.


As a work-around, you could set an Entity Property in the Project every time a release occurs.  You may then access the value when you need it.  But that seems redundant, as I noted above.

To learn more about entity properties, please look here:

@Bill Sheboy  : Rule works only if the issues are linked to the release version

My aim is to update the custom field with the latest relase version irrespective of it being linked or not 

Capture the latest release version of porject and display it in custom field.



Hi @Bill Sheboy  : 


I want the custom field to be used in confluence so that it can display the data realtime in confluecne documentation.


There isnt exist any macro which can be used to display the latest release version , hence this workaround


Entity properties havent used , so no idea about it 



Thanks for that information.  Of note, please try to stay on one thread in these responses.  That will help others searching for answers in the future.

To solve what you ask without purchasing any add-ons, you could add a two-dimensional filter gadget (under the Jira chart macros), using your filter for latestReleasedVersion.  That could show the version and issue count.

If that will not meet your needs, please take a look at the marketplace add-ons to see what is available for purchase.
