Is there an official version number for the current Jira Cloud?

After digging everywhere I can't find a decent answer.

Some say there is a version number and some say there not.


I also came across this:


"we document the latest versions of JIRA Cloud by number, however, we don't have a public place to display this information for customers since they are not relevant at all."


So, which one is it?

Technically, there is a version number, and you can get it with a REST call for system information.

But it is of no use to you.  You have no control over what version you will be using, it changes frequently, and it tells you nothing about compatibility with other systems.

Why are you looking for a version number?

Version number can be retrieved via below rest api.

Hello Guy,

I don't know exactly about this version number, which is very likely to exist even though it's not public, but I know this :

Jira Cloud is automatically updated for every user by Atlassian, hence every user from every instance, is working using the same "version number" of the Cloud version, which is the same for everyone at a given moment, independently of the company they are working for.

Hence, I don't know why you need this information for but as it is said in your quote, it's not a very "relevant" piece of information.


Keep me informed if it made your comprehension any clearer,



As a Healthcare/Medical device company we should validate On the Shelf tools we use, also for our Quality Management, so it includes the JIRA.

Validation is done for intended use scenarios execute on a particular SW version. If JIRA cloud is updates recently without our control so this validation is not valid anymore.

Do you have any solution for that issue? can I freeze my cloud version? and sure need to know what version we are validating.


@Talya Yurman you are right about the "not valid validation". We do have helped medical device companies with validation and see some solutions there. In case you'd like to learn more contact us and we can have chat on the topic. So just drop me an email: 

We have also had discussion with Atlassian about this version number and actually there isnt one. This ecosystem API is just one piece of the puzzle, since whole Atlassian ecosystem is larger than just this component.
