Jira Cloud With Multi Projects Shared Releases

I am looking for assistance in how to share one release (versions) across multiple projects in Jira.

Hi Stacie - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

This is currently not possible as Releases are created per project. You could create a release in each project with the exact same name. But they won't be truly shared. 

Hi @Stacie Coates

as John said you can't create cross-project releases in Jira. The only solution, for now, is to maintain versions manually in multiple projects or use a Jira app to do this for you.

I wrote a post about this topic a few months back, you can have a look here:

I hope this helps :)


Hi @Stacie Coates 

I would like to suggest another alternative which can solve your problem, hope it will some your problem and improve a few more related areas. 

We have created Release management add on for Jira data centre and Jira cloud which helps to create cross-project versions in Jira. It also can help to synchronize versions between multiple projects and compose packages of multiple versions.

Out of the box, there are a few more handy features, such as:

  • Release Reports
  • Automated Release Notes+ Integration with Confluence
  • Custom version workflow 
  • Environments and deployment tracking.

Hope it will help you to automate daily release routines.
