Releasing a new version of software usually involves a number of tasks, such as releasing the version in Jira Software, building and testing, merging code, creating tags, creating branches, labeling builds, etc. If you have connected Jira Software to Atlassian's Bamboo, you can trigger these tasks to run automatically at the release of a version in Jira Software.
When you release a Jira Software version, you will have the option of selecting a Bamboo plan and specifying which stages in the plan to run. Releasing the version will run the plan in Bamboo. If the plan is successful, the version will be released on Jira Software. Otherwise, the version will not be released.
Before you begin
