@Viji DP you can use a 'Version updated' automation:

Just change [SUBDOMAIN] to your jira instance, and [PROJECT_KEY] to your project key in the content section.

Any other changes in the content are up to you.

Unfortunately the Version updated automation is limited to trigger on any change:

From a quick search I haven't found any way to determine which field changed, so I'm not sure you can just trigger on release date changes.

is it atleast possible to capture what actually changed . In the content section of the triggered email.

As far as I can see versions don't have a history, so all we have is the 'now' information  and can't capture from that what actually changed.

I actually link Jira Service Management Change Request tickets to each release and use those for tracking dates etc. as I then have access to a change calendar that is easily visible to all teams, and update the version information when the change is complete.

If you don't have JSM you could just create a Jira ticket 'Release for version x' linked to the release and track the dates etc. on that.
