I have created a Scrum project using the next-gen template but am not seeing the vertical Version "tab" on the backlog management screen. Is this not available in this template? Is this something I need to enable - I can't find anything in the settings. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
We enabled Next-Gen releases in our app Swanly release timeline for Jira Cloud.
You can create release for Next-Gen project in application. We're currently working on showing Fix version field in Next-Gen issues.
There is much more features available eg. Visualisation of releases on Timeline, Adding custom stages to releases, cross-project releases…
(I'm the product owner of the app)
Why there aren't any plans to add versioning and releasing for next-gen projects?
I understand that next-gen projects are to be more concise and simple but that doesn't necessarily mean that we do not need VERSIONING and RELEASING in our products and projects !!
We enabled full support for release functionality in Next-Gen projects in app Swanly release timeline for Jira Cloud.
You can create release for Next-Gen project, access Releases screen and assign versions to Next-Gen issues. just like in clasic projects.

This is nuts... you remove a critical feature of simply managing version releases from the product and now we have to go and pay another 3rd party to get it back.
I love your products but sometimes I really question decisions you guys make when it comes to looking after your users.
As others have said, we tried and abandoned "nextgen" boards because of this also. Perhaps I didn't understand the purpose of nextgen boards in the first place; I was hoping the ability to toggle certain features on and off in a product's lifecycle (backlog, sprints, etc.) would serve us well since not all our products are on the same type of development cycle all the time. I didn't realize that convenience came with such severe functionality restrictions in other areas.
I understand if these boards are still being developed and some features are just not present yet, but is there a roadmap or general purpose statement for this board type that would help us know if we should ever look at these again in the future?
Agreed with my colleagues below: the next-gen project template is too raw for professional and efficient usage. No versions, no advanced board settings, no epic management within backlog.
That would be a nice solution for management tasks or demo version of JIRA but definitely not for professional projects.
It's very important for our organisation to have an issue about the management of release. It's very close with the roadmap.
Could you say us when this feature can be implement in the next gen project? Without this we can't move in the next gen. We will happy to change but without this we can't move.
Thank you for your answers;
I'm seeing documentation on this... but it's not available in my cloud version yet. I'm hoping it's being rolled out as we speak. https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwarecloud/releases-and-versions-980451731.html
Not for me. I logged out, logged in, created a new Scrum next-gen project but cannot see fixVersion yet. Do Atlassian roll the features out to subsets of their user-base to start with, gradually widening the subset? I think someone mentioned an early interest/ beta group but this was not published anywhere that I would get notifications from.
Hi Folks, I'm excited to announce that releases and versions (Milestone 1) is now available for you to use on your next-gen projects!
All you need to do is enable the 'Releases and versions' toggle in the feature page under Project Settings, more details are available here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwarecloud/releases-and-versions-980451731.html.
Milestone 1 includes the ability to:
I've just published a Community post about the experience for you if you're interested in learning more: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-articles/New-features-for-next-gen-projects-in-Jira-Software-Cloud/ba-p/1232149
We are shipping additional functionality in subsequent milestones which we anticipate we'll be able to roll out soon after milestone 1.
In the meantime please let me know if you have any feedback on the above!
Using the New Gen Version - Quite unhappy as we can longer see Sub Tasks Grouped By Assignee as We Create one User Story and we create Back-End, Front-End & Design Sub Tasks Assigned To Different Resources. Therefore we can't see or track individual effort to deliver on a User Story.
When to use CSV importer When managing your processes in Jira, there are many occasions where you need to create a lot of tasks. Creating them one by one will cost you a lot of time and effort and i...
