Hi @Brahim Ferhat,

Welcome to the Atlassian community.

Releases represent points in time for your project. They can be used to schedule how features are rolled out to your customers, or as a way to organize work that has been completed for the project. In Jira Software, each release is called a version.

For more information, you may refer to Releases and versions.

I hope that this helps

Hi @Brahim Ferhat ,

JIRA release is aligned with Agile's PSPI (Potential Shippable Product Increment) concept. It means we identified a bunch of product features which will add some business value to the existing/new product.

The JIRA release may include any or all off Epics, User Stories, Tasks, Sub-Tasks, Bug tickets which started from your backlog till execution bugs.

At the end, you will get working business feature software update, which should be ready to be deployed in production. Although Agile means least documentation, you might also received documents describing information as per your organization policies.

Hope it will help.


Thanks a lot Mac S, it helps a lot !

This is where Atlassian documentation comes in handy. Depending on the details surrounding your question you would want to inspect one or more articles. Here is a query for “releases” in the cloud docs -
