Include only "integrated" issues in the release notes


Currently the release notes of a version is comprised from all the JIRA issues with the "Fix version" value of the release notes version. This list does not take into account the state/phase of the issues, just the "Fix version" value.

For example, today the release notes includes issues that are in "rejected" or "closed", which means those issues will not be included in the release. (they were rejected or could'nt be repreduced, and therefore should not appear in the release note).

I'm looking for a way to tell JIRA to include only the issues that were really integrated into the release.
One simple way (but manual) to do that is to remove the "fix version" value from each issue that was "rejected" or "closed"

Anyone can think of a more efficeint way to solve this?

Thanks a lot Mark.

Thank you Mark, our integrator was able to filter the release notes thanks to your link!
