'Next unreleased version' does not pop up when setting up automation rule Edited

Hello, 

I would like to replicate and apply the following automation rule for my project: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/How-can-I-automate-assigning-earliest-open-FIX-VERSION-to-status/qaq-p/1384606

However, when opening a tab with 'Fix versions' under the Edit issue filed, I cannot find 'next unreleased version' within my project. 

Do I need to create an automation rule for that? or should it pop up by itself? 

Thank you in advance!

The 'next unreleased version' is a custom field that you will need to configure in your project.

Navigate to Settings -> Issues -> Custom fields and then click 'Create custom field' of type either 'Number field' or 'Text field' and name it 'Next unreleased version' and then associate it with a screen/s.

Once you have your custom field, create a new automation rule following the instructions you were previously following and you'll find this 'Next unreleased version' field in the drop-down list.

Edit: Sorry @Ekaterina Kozuseva , I misunderstood the question. Please ignore this!

@Airbus Driver I have created the custom field, however, it appears as a separate type of the field under the 'Choose fields to set' and not under the fix version now. 

What am I doing wrong? 

Or did we mean different things? I want the 'Next unreleased version' to pick the unreleased fix version automatically, not create it as a separate field on the task. 

Sorry, @Ekaterina Kozuseva , I'm out of ideas. If I manage to find a solution, I'll post it here.

@Airbus Driver thanks for the reply.

Hi @Ekaterina Kozuseva 

What problem are you trying to solve?

You posted:

What do you mean by opening a tab?

The earliestUnreleasedVersion() is a function which is available in JQL, and it is also an option (called "Next unreleased version") available when assigning a version in an automation rule.  It is *not* a custom field.

Best regards,
Bill

The problem is that @Ekaterina Kozuseva (and me) are unable to get the "Next unreleased version" as an option in the automation rule.

Hi Bill, 

 

Indeed, we are not getting the 'next unreleased version' option at the first place in order to set an automation rule as described here:

And my question is if it should be there by default (seemed so when I was reading other instructions) or I am doing anything wrong at the first place and I am supposed to set it up somewhere for it (next unreleased version) to appear as in the screenshot.

Hi, and thanks for clarifying!  

Something is clearly broken/different, as I also confirmed the option is now gone, even though it is shown in the post you reference and there are open defects about its behavior.

I suggest asking your site admin to submit a defect to support here: https://support.atlassian.com/contact/#/

Once you hear back from them, please post what you learn.  Thanks!

Hi Bill, it appeared to be a bug, it is now resolved :)

Thanks for the follow-up @Ekaterina Kozuseva !

Would you post what you learned as a new answer here, and then mark it as "accepted"?  That will help others in the community find solutions faster, as we cannot see the information about your support ticket.  Thanks!

Unfortunatly useless
I've found all unreleased version of my project, there are listed inside the label dropdown:

I've choosen Labels from "Choose fields to set..." button, than I find all my project version on Labels suggest dropdown

 

I hope this bug will be fixed soon.
