How to create JIRA releases automatically?

Hi all

I'm setting up a development workflow, and I am looking for some help in automating it.

How to generate JIRA releases automatically, triggered by transition? The version system I have in mind is variation of semantic versioning: Major Version (manually selected) . No of completed Epics + Stories . Number of closed prodlogs

Are there any good reference materials? Or is it even possible now?

Yes, it should be simple with scriptrunner or a similar tool.

There's an interface called VersionManager implemeted by the class DefaultVersionManager

You can obtain a reference from the ComponentAccessor directly and to the work:

Thanks for the suggestion. our company already has JMWE, could it be used for my purpose? 


I'm very new to JIRA and all of it's add-ons, could you recommend a very basic tutorial of some sort, as scriptrunner appears to be lacking one?  

Wait, at this point I must note that we are using JIRA Cloud.
