Enable deployments

Are you on the right help page?

The following information only applies to next-gen projects.

To check which type project you need help with, look at the bottom of your project’s left-hand sidebar:

  • If you see an icon stating You’re in a next-gen project with Give feedback and Learn more menu items, you're in a next-gen project.

  • If you don't, you're in a classic project. Check out our classic project documentation.

The Deployments feature gives you greater visibility of deployments by tracking and displaying Git Pipelines against the Jira issues over a time scale. You can visualize the progress of a work-item as it moves through your deployment pipeline.

To enable the Deployments feature, you’ll first need to integrate Jira Software with your deployment or CI/CD provider. Learn how to connect your CI/CD Pipelines with your project.

For a classic software project, refer to Integrate your deployments with Jira.

Enable Deployments for your next-gen software project

Only project admins can enable and disable features on a project.

  1. Navigate to your next-gen software project.

  2. Go to Project Settings Features.

  3. Enable the Deployments feature.

A new menu item, Deployments, will be added to the project menu.
