Is there a way to automatically copy version from one project to another?

So a bunch of projects share the same release train.  I would like to be able to create versions in one main project and have those versions copied or automatically created in the other projects.

Is there a way to do that?

Hi @Siree 

Yes, you may do that with a global / multiple project rule.

For example, let say when a version is created on Project A that you want to also create it in Project B, you would use:

  • Create a global rule in Project A, selecting Projects A and B as included
  • Trigger: Version created
  • Action: Create version
    • Copy the name and/or release date from the triggering version.  At this time, these are the only fields which can be set for a version with automation rules.
    • Under more options, select to create the version in Project B


Best regards,


I tried that but got an error saying it has to be linked to an issue.

I tried the rule I suggested and it worked for me.  Would you please post the error you are seeing, from creating the rule or in the audit log when running the rule?

Definitely check out the Version Sync app for Jira Cloud.

It's indeed possible to automatically copy versions from one project to others.
