Releasing project version using Transitions

I am thinking about creating a release workflow for some of my projects. I would like to create a "Release" issue, and have a transition called "Release", which would close the JIRA release version (mark the version as "Released") associated with that issue (the "Fix Version" of that issue). Currently I manually administer the project, click the cog icon next to the release version, then mark it as released.

Can this be done?

You will have to develop a post function that does this. Use VersionManager.

No idea what you mean at all.  I am not finding the documentation clear at all.  So what exactly am I mean to do with a post function and I have no idea how to use VersionManager.  Perhaps you could give me step by step guide as I am new to Jira.  The only reason I am using Jira is for defect management from TestRail.





This post is nearly 5 years old, and things have moved on a bit.  As an old question, only a limited number of people will have seen your reply too.

I suggest you re-ask the question of the whole community, detailing your scenario, mentioning that you're using TestRail explicitly (as this question is not about TestRail at all).

Thanks Nic


I shall do so.


Kind regards
