Component Level Versions?

My companies current processes rely on versioning on what would be defined as a component within JIRA. Is there a method for tracking version information at this level? Managing each component as a separate project would not be feasible in our structure.

Component versioning is a long-standing open feature request:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-3501

The updated description that says ..."we won't be able to fit this issue into the JIRA roadmap for the next 12 months" was added on May 27th 2011 - so I guess that we are in with a chance for 2012. But I would not hold my breath.

Note that there is a suggested work-around: use cascading select custom field.

As Mark suggested a cascading select would work.

Another option is to use the behaviours plugin and take a look at the behaviour to 'Add or remove options to a single or multi-select fileds, (https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/wiki/display/JBHV/Miscellaneous+Behaviours+Examples#MiscellaneousBehavioursExamples-Addorremoveoptionstosingleormultiselectfields) The example that is given there is with componenets and subcomponents, or in your case it would be components and component versions.

We have developed a JIRA plugin that allows component specific version numbers. It enforces component specific versions on issue create, edit, inline edit and workflow screens. You can check it out at Atlassian Marketplace (Component and Bundle Versions for JIRA) or at read the plug-in's help page for more detailed manual. This Plugin also allows you to group different versions of different components into one bundle. At issue creation page, if you do not select any component, this plugin only allows you to select bundle version numbers. It also provides two new JQL functions (affectsBundle and fixedInBundle) to query issues affecting a bundle. We welcome any feedbacks.
