Managing muliple software items/versions within the same project


I've been looking for a way to track multiple versions of software within the scope of the same project.

Here is the scenario. I have a project A that I use to track tasks/bugs/etc for a embedded device.

This device has multiple processors (therfore different software versions for each processor).

How can I keep track of these multiple versions. I use Stash to maintain these repo's (eventually Bamboo for CI), but couldn't find a way to manage different versions in the same project. I ended up tracking the overall release number but it makes it harder to track.

So how would you approach a setup like mine?

I think you need a managed cascade select custom field for that. Define your list of processors as top level, then manage the values of child options, and set the context of the CF to be that project. Yes it requires an admin to add versions etc, but once selected you can use JQL to create filters, and from there, report?

Hi Andy,

interesting idea. I'll give it a try. If that doesn't work Ill just have to settle for multiple projects.
