Build number in versions

Hi,

We want to be able to report the version number and build number with JIRA and track any state change using it, besides the version number.

I've seen several old issues and questions about this feature, and as I can see, all of them are workarounds. Is this feature available now?

Thank you

I am sorry, but this question is very unclear.  Atlassian Cloud handles versions, changes of state and builds in a reasonably clear way,

Specifically, you say

"version number and build number with JIRA and track any state change using it, besides the version number".  What does "besides the version number" mean?

and

"I've seen several old issues and questions about this feature, and as I can see, all of them are workarounds. Is this feature available now?"

What feature?  What workarounds? 

 

 

Thank you for you answer.

How can I define the build number of an existing version I defined in JIRA, and how the users can select the build number when they create an issue, add a comment or make a state change? 

Now they can select the version number, but it isn't enough for us.

Thank you in advance

 

As I understand your requirement I think there can be multiple build numbers for a version.

 

You can implement this by creating a custom field using "Database Values Plugin" which is cascading and gets versions and related builds from a database. Then you need some way of storing the build numbers against the version in the database. I have done this using maven so that each time a relevant build is performed in jenkins the Exec Maven plugin runs code to write version and build number to the database.
