How can I query using JQL for the latest release version of a project?

Is it possible to query for the latest release version of a particular project in JQL?  In SQL you would use MAX(release version), but I'm thinking there isn't an equivalent in SQL.

Hello Cynthia,

You could try something like "fixVersion = latestReleasedVersion(TEST)" to find the last released version for the TEST project, for example. smile

can we print the Fix version value by using a command or some thing else ?

Thanks & regards


Or you might want to create your own JQL query with SQL for JIRA as it supports the full JIRA issue and project database model, so it is possible (and easy) to write a SQL query to get the latest release of any project and then convert it into a JIRA JQL query.

That was a nice idea until I checked with our PM.  He said they use fixVersion and ReleaseVersion as the same.

Hello Cynthia,

perhaps there is a misunderstanding here? fixVersion is the field of an issue.

Some issues may have "V2.3", earlier ones may have "V2.2" in that field.

 latestReleaseVersion(<projectname>) is the version name of the project which has been released latest - so in my case most probably this value is "V2.3".

So many issues in that project should have that latestReleaseVersion (i.e. the name of that version, here "V2.3") as the content of the fixVersion field.




Tis messy here...I don't dispute your version definitions in the least.
