Hi All,

We want to generate PDF release notes for each of our releases from Jira. Please let me know the possibilities of this.

Thanks in Advance.

Use the PDF View Plugin to generate PDF release notes with a single click. 

It comes with a built-in release notes template, which is more than just an issue list, and can be totally customized. By default, it has all the usual sections (overview, instructions, etc.), and groups the issues by type, but again, you are allowed to rebuild this from scratch.

See this PDF sample or the screenshot below, and check out the plugin page about the features:

Hey Fahad,

You can create a custom release notes template to achieve this. Please take a look on this page to understand how to do it.

Thanks Arthur, but I couldnt find any details about genrating the release notes in PDF, it only says about generating the release notes in text and html format. Thanks Fahad

Fahad, you can create using html format and after that save the html to a pdf using Google Chrome. For more information on how to save an html page on Google Chrome in PDF please refer the url below.

Hope it helps!



@Fahad1, you may want to take a look at Automated release notes app for Jira. It is available for Cloud as well as Server versions.
