Release a version

Before you release a version, it’s a good idea to use the release page to view your version’s progress and check:

  • code is checked in, reviewed, and merged

  • builds are passing

  • issues have been deployed to the correct environment

  • you’ve addressed any warnings

Learn more about using the release page to check the progress of a version.

To release a version:

You must have project administrator permissions to release a version. Learn more about managing project permissions.

  1. From your project’s sidebar, select Releases.

  2. Select the version from the list.

  3. In the top-right, select the version’s current status (for example, Unreleased) and then select Release.

  4. Choose what to do with any unresolved issues, and enter a release date.

  5. Select Release.

Releasing via a Kanban board in a company-managed project

In a Kanban project, releasing a version via the board will release all issues in that version that are 'Done' (i.e. in the right-most column of the board).

  1. Go to the project that your version is in.

  2. Click Kanban board.

  3. Click the Release menu to view a list of your project’s unreleased versions. The list will only include versions that have been assigned to the issues in the ‘Done’ column on your board. If there are no versions assigned to these issues, you can choose to release the issues to a new version.

  4. Select the version you want to release. The release dialog will be displayed.

  5. Enter the details for the release, then click Release.

Issues will disappear from the board once all their fix versions have been released.
