Create release notes

If you organize your projects with versions, you can generate release notes to see all issues within a version in a single list, separated by the issue types. This list allows you to quickly copy all the changes associated with your release for creating a release notes document.

Release notes editor page in Jira

To create release notes for a version in your project:

  1. Go to your project and click Project settings

  2. Select Versions in the project sidebar. If you're using Jira Software, select Releases.

  3. Select the Version whose release notes you wish to generate.

  4. Click Release Notes.

  5. Select the layout and the issue types.

  6. Click Regenerate notes to create or reset the release notes. Jira creates a list of issues for your project version, showing the key for each issue with a link and summary. This release list is grouped by the issue types such as Story, Bug, or Epic.

  7. Click anywhere on the release notes to add your own notes using the editor.

  8. Click Copy to clipboard to copy the release notes and paste them in a text file or your team’s Confluence space.

Release notes are auto-generated

Each time you visit the release notes page, we automatically generate your release notes based on the current state of your version. We don’t save any changes you make using the release notes editor.
