Pushing a release into Jira


V12 4:24 Start+.svg


When working with Productboard and Jira, admins and editors can push a release into Jira. With the push of a button, Productboard can push an entire release into Jira, even syncing your releases to your Fix versions if desired.release_push.jpg

  • Productboard release groups are mapped to Jira fix versions.
  • If you have multiple release groups in Productboard, you can decide which one to map to Jira fix version in Productboard's Jira integration settings.
  • Clicking on the push button will push the release to Jira, but the “unpushed” state will remain. If the release already exists in Jira, the dialog will notify you.
  • All releases within the same release group must have a unique name. Creating a release without a name will create a release called "Unnamed release."

Setting up release syncing

To set up release syncing between your Productboard account and a Fix version in your Jira integration: 

  1. Click on the workspace name, and select Integrations (Integration.svg):

Note: Please ensure the Fix Version checkbox is ticked in the Jira Integration settings on Productboard to push the release through.

Now, when you create a new Fix version in Jira, it will sync with your desired release group. Take a look at it in action below:
