How to obtain a Released Releases Report from Jira Software Cloud?

We use Jira Software Cloud and several projects. For each we use the Releases tab as it is intended to, we enter version name, start date, release date, description. Then we track work against those product releases, all good.

Often times I need to look back at past/released releases and be able to provide information on those in a form of a report.
When it comes to data it is all good because I can query the data or go to the release report, all good.

But when it comes to as an example, providing a full list of released releases in Q1 across X multiple Jira Projects, I can't easily get those.

The information I would need to obtain is what was entered in each Releases tab itself, so a report would be a list of all releases with their version name, start date, release date, description.

Is there a way to obtain a report with this information from multiple projects?

Any ideas on how to get to this? 

Thanks a lot for any help on this!

Hi @Aline Chapman

from my understanding so far extended reporting facilities are available with "Advanced Roadmaps" (please also compare with the documentation).
Advanced Roadmaps are, however, part of the Jira Cloud Plans - Premium and above.

The exact formatting you suggested would be probably not possible to display - you would need to adjust the results still, in case the offered way data is displayed is not sufficient/desired.

There also might be Apps available from Marketplace (https://marketplace.atlassian.com) - doing a search for "releases" within Marketplace I found several Apps that look promising in regards to a reporting but I cannot recommend a specific one.

You could check them and verify with vendors if the requirement is met by one of their Apps.


With out of box functionality of Jira it would be most likely not possible to extract the information in a way you intend it - the basics of what Jira is able to offer, however, were already explained well by Vero.

Regards,
Daniel

Thank you very much for the direction on this item.

Hi @Aline Chapman,

It's worth being aware that the report that @Daniel Ebers has mentioned is part of the old "Live Plans" interface for Advanced Roadmaps that has now been deprecated and will no longer be available after July 31st.

We do want to introduce some of the reporting capabilities back into the new interface in the future but at the moment have no concrete plans so I'm unable to give you an expectation of it or when it will be available. 

Regards,

Dave 

Hi @Aline Chapman 

   If I understood you correctly, you want to see everything that has been deployed in each release, as you can see in the image of the post, you can access the release option and in the link that says "Release notes", you will see a report that offers you JIRA with all the issues of the specific release that you are reviewing

Thank you for the quick answer Vero, but that is not it.

Here's a mock up of what I would like to see in a JQL result, as an example, I'm looking to get the releases information as we enter them in the releases tab.

Any ideas?

@Aline Chapman - did you find a solution for this? 

Not within Jira. We just started using the Power BI Jira Connector plugin and from there we can access this type of information. 

Power BI was going to be my next step. I'm wanting to create some reports that show release frequency, as well as velocity of each release.
