How to handle multiple fix versions with separate status?

What is the best way to handle the case where an issue will have multiple versions that need to be fixed?  Each fix will have it own workflow as they will need to be reviewed, tested and released separately.  Rules to meet are:

  • Initial fix version needs to be created automatically from affected version on issue creation.
  • When all versions have been fixed the issue is closed.
  • List of versions and their status needs to be available on issue screen.
  • Since every issue will have multiple versions to be fixed this needs minimal user interaction.

Create a sub-task for each version.

Jira can be set to close the parent when all subtasks are resolved, it will list them, with status, in the subtask section, and you can keep it really minimal with just status and a single version field and an open/closed workflow. 

Heck, if you want to automate, you could write a script that has a rule for which versions you need a sub-task for, and automatically create them, then have Bamboo move the sub-tasks to "test" or "closed" when a build and test run for a version says it was successful
