We have multiple stakeholders that each create issues within their own dedicated projects but all issues ultimately funnel through one development team. That said, we have sprints that are comprised of issues from multiple projects.
I want to use versions to better plan which issues will be included in targeted release dates. But it seems Jira currently limits use of Versions to just one project only. Are there any suggestions how I can get around this?
Another options would be to create a separate JIRA project dedicated to releases. Within this project each ticket/issue represents a release. You can then link the tickets from multiple projects to a "Release" ticket. Doing it this way, using JIRA out-of the-box functionality, will also allow you to:
Thanks Arthur. Unfortunately, I believe we are running a JIRA on demand instance so this add-on won't work. Any other suggestions? What I am considering is migrating all the various projects into ONE project in order to use Versions the way Atlassian limits their use. In order to do this, I plan to: 1. Assign Components to all the issues within a project, per project. 2. Create the same Components in the unified project. 3. Migrate all the issues to the unified project via bulk change operation a. This should confirm a mapping of existing Components to matching Components in the new project. 4. I will then create Boards with filters by Component to give each stakeholder group an unsullied view of their issues. 5. One of the Boards will include all issues, allowing the planning / dev / QA team to reconcile and plan the full breadth of work by release in a single view. 6. (optional) Delete other projects. I'd like to avoid this rigor if possible so if you have a better idea...? Thanks.
