Release management across different jira projects.

Need your help to figure out something..

Suppose we have 3 Mobile app development teams (Team A JIRA, Team B JIRA, Team C JIRA) and they work to release 1 app. All of these teams have separate JIRA “PROJECT”. Not boards in same project, rather different projects (for some reasons).

Release is maintained from master JIRA Project (Master JIRA) which is also used for company wide roadmap management.  

Is there any way to configure release hub (link below) using Sprint Version rather than fix version.

Basically what i would like to see is, when i click say release version iOS 0.0.0 from Master JIRA Project -> Release -> iOS 0.0.0; i should see all the tickets across all the Project which contain "sprint = iOS 0.0.0"


While writing this i realized that some teams might have multiple sprints but ONE release, still let me stick to my question.


Hi @ambujp ,


Unfortunately, Jira doesn't support cross-project releases out of the box. Such a problem could be solved by using an add-on. If you are already using Advanced roadmaps (Portfolio in the past) - you can solve the problem by using Roadmaps.

If no, I would like to suggest you using our add. We have created it to solve exactly the same problem which you have explained in your message.  

Release management for Jira/Release management & Roadmaps  for Jira cloud. 

The add on is easy to use and it has a reasonable price.

By using the add on you could be able:

  • Organize cross-project multi-version releases 
  • Create/update/archive versions in a bulk
  • Manage cross project scope and progress in a single place. 
  • Define custom workflow for cross project release and each version inside the release
  • ...and many more: lightweight roadmaps,  gadgets, reports, environments management, integration with Bitbucket, automated release notes, webhooks and rest API to automate release operation.

I hope it will have you to solve your problem. Also, please let me know if you would need any support with configuration and adoption of the add-on.

Hi @ambujp ,

as already mentioned, there isn't really a way to configure Release hub in Jira. Releases in Jira are Project specific by default.

1. Use JQL

What you can do is to name the Fix version in your 3 projects same and then use JQL to search issues that are being delivered in these Fix versions. Luckily enough if you use the same name you can do something like this:

fixVersion = TEC-1.0.0

and you'll get results of issues from all projects.

2. Or the app

There are also few apps on Atlassian Marketplace that are helping to solve this problem. One of them developed by our team at Jexo.

Swanly is a roadmap tool also focusing on releases and it's giving the option to create cross-project releases.

And also offers this cross-project report view 👇
