How to add release notes/description?

I'm using the Create version and Release version actions. They don't seem to provide the ability to add a description. I want to provide release notes within this description.

Is this possible or would this functionality have to be added?

@Maarten Manders versions themselves in Jira have the description field in addition to start & end dates. Are you looking for something else?


I know you can manually enter the description field. I'm looking to automate this using the automation plugin. See

That is right, I don't think Automation for Jira supports adding description field when versions are created/released through its functions.

I thought so, hoped I missed it somehow.
