Hello ,

What does mean “Releases” on the JIRA project, it is the released SW ?

In fact we have the list of issues , when reklease some issues we get a Document or a piece of code, SW, or package , so what we mean by Releases , SW or status of the project in time, and what is this status value  ?

 

Thanks a lot , Br, Brahim.

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 - https://confluence.atlassian.com/search/?productName=Jira%20Software&productVersion=Cloud&queryString=Releases

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.

Regards.

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

Thanks,
Moga

Assume you're developing a large box of exciting new features for your software application. In Jira, a "release" is similar to a box tagged with a version number. This box contains all of the completed items (fixed bugs, new features) that are ready to be shared with users.

 

Here's a breakdown:

  • You work on features and bug fixes in small chunks.
  • When several of these pieces are completed and tested, they are grouped together as a "release."
  • This release is essentially a snapshot of your software at that point in time.
  • You can then send this release box (or a replica) to the following places:
    • A testing area to ensure everything runs smoothly (similar to a practice round).
    • Finally, give your actual users the exciting & shiny new features!

Jira helps you keep track of what goes in each release box and when it's ready to be shipped out.
