I would like to know if it is possible to add new release note template/style for Jira 5.2.
Based on this link: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Creating+a+Custom+Release+Notes+Template+Containing+Release+Comments#CreatingaCustomReleaseNotesTemplateContainingReleaseComments-Step2:CreatingCustomVelocityTemplatesforReleaseNotesReports, it is possible to customize the template but what we want is to add a new template so that there will be 3 Release notes style options: HTML, Text and 'Custom Style'
This is possible!
Just do the following:
jira-config.properties(if this file does not exist, create it!) The JIRA-HOMEDIR is the directory where your attachments and stuff is stored, usually in /.../application-data/jira
jira.releasenotes.templatenames = Text, Html, Custom
jira.releasenotes.templates = releasenotes-text.vm, releasenotes-html.vm, releasenotes-custom.vm,
Now you should have three options when generating Release Notes.
Hope that helps!
In case you are looking for an easier option, check out the plugin Intelligent Reports. It lets you design your relase notes template in Microsoft Word, and select which issues to include, JQL queries, custom fields etc by a powerful point and click interface. One of the example templates it comes with is Release Notes, so you can use that as a starting point.
