I am trying to develop a better practice for managing and naming JIRA releases (versions) and associating JIRA issues with these. Here is the context:
Here is a diagram illustrating this:
I believe this is not that uncommon. Atlassian itself seems to be using 3-part version numbers as well and they are clearly developing these in multiple iterations.
Suppose the following cases:
My question is, how to organize this in JIRA.
If I create a JIRA release entry for each customer-facing version (i.e. 2.5.8), then I cannot associate issues with iterations or builds for internal use. I have issues with iteration planning (see case 1 above) and recoding issues that are relevant between iterations only (see case 2 above).
I am not sure how I could possibly create a JIRA release for each iteration, since the iteration does not end up in our version scheme. It could be made up (e.g. 2.5.8#1, 2.5.8#2) of course. However, this would render JIRA's release notes obsolete, as customers would not want to see release notes for an iteration, but cummulated for all iterations of a customer-facing version and they would not want to see "internal" issues that existed only between iterations.
I most likely do not want to create a JIRA release for each build.
Are there any best-practices how to do this? What methods are others applying?
I would love to hear your feedback and shared experience.
