I am having some trouble figuring out the best way to use JIRA to handle the release of a new product. The manual process currently being used is:
1. Declare a new release should be done
2. Person A prepares a release (bumps version, packages software)
3. Person B does some final testing on the packaged release
4. Person C does the distribution
One thought I had was to create a new issue type called “Release” and then create workflow that would take the process through the stages mentioned above.
However, since this process should a common one (but maybe it isn’t) and there doesn’t seem to be direction and default support for it in JIRA, I figure I am over thinking things and there is a way that JIRA should be used to manage this.
Any and all comments are welcome.
