I'd like to set up a field so that the values are versions from a different project. The use case is a documentation project that does work for many other projects.
In documentation issues, we'd like to specify that the issue relates to version X of project Y. Is there an elegant way to do this?
Hi Ashton ,
A possible solution is to provide a select list which will show all the versions from all the projects , but what if the user does not has permissions for a particular project or if versions with same name exists within different projects ?
You can provide 2 customfields , one a project picker other a select list or a version picker . when user selects a project from the project picker the options in the version picker will show versions of that project .
@Ashton: I don't know if this is still an issue for you, but we have just launched our Version Sync add-on for JIRA to the Marketplace that will do exactly this. It will automatically keep versions in sync between multiple projects, where you have one "Master" project and an unlimited number of linked projects to which version changes are propgated.
Support for JIRA Cloud is still under investigation. The main 'problem' is that due to security reasons, Atlassian Connect (the Cloud add-on architecture) does not allow UI-hijacking for JIRA features such as the Versions, Components and project administration screens . This complicates porting the add-on to JIRA Cloud as an important feature is the ability to block users from adding new versions or components for projects that have been linked and for which synchronisation is enabled.
Okay so I'm using this plugin and while i like most of it, it shows duplicate versions in the child projects (one version from the feature project and one from the child project). How can i hide the duplicate version from the feature project that appears in the child project?
