What is the release button api end point?


I'm planning to trigger release in jira, when prod CI/CD pipeline is triggered using curl command. To perform, I need api end point for release button. Also I have an API endpoint to trigger my pipeline, so is there a way to trigger an API endpoint from Jira when I click the same release button.

@Muhammad Fahad We are using jira cloud hosted by atlassian, but the confluence link you have shared is for server and data center.

@Muhammad Fahad I would appreciate if you can confirm that, we can use update API endpoint to trigger the release?

Hi @Vikraman - Yes, that's correct. You need to use Update version endpoint and pass released as true for the released versions:

cURL example:

curl --request PUT \ --url '{id}' \ --user '<api_token>' \ --header 'Accept: application/json' \ --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \ --data '{ "archived": false, "overdue": true, "releaseDate": "2010-07-06", "name": "New Version 1", "self": "", "description": "An excellent version", "userReleaseDate": "6/Jul/2010", "id": "10000", "projectId": 10000, "released": true }'
Like Vikraman likes this

{"errorMessages":[],"errors":{"name":"A version with this name already exists in this project."}}


@Muhammad Fahad I'm getting the above response.
My requirement is to trigger an existing release using api end point

We only provide released and releasedDate properties in the body.
