release notes - I cant save them in a Version

Hi There.

I am trying to set up Release management in JIRA using versions and am trying to add relevant release notes to a specific version.

I can enter information to the Release notes box in either HTML or TEXT. But I dont have a button to save og cancel or anything? Therefore the entered text disappears.  I am an adminsitrator of JIra and we use version  Atlassian JIRA Project Management Software (v6.3.15#6346-sha1:dbc023d) 

Please help as it is a vital component in Release Management. Even adding it as an attachment or to be able to link to a confluence site would help me a lot

Have you taken a look at the Creating Release notes docs?

You should have a Create button in order to generate the release notes with your added information there.


While your statement is accurate and reflects on the instructional link you provided, I too am hitting the same issue where I get to the 'create' button, hit, it, and the next time I look at the release notes, they are still empty.

The idea is, when you are in HTML or TEXT mode, the only option you have is to copy paste the whole data into somewhere else (Confluence, PDFs, word etc...). You can add whatever you like afterwards
