Developers, Product Managers, Release and Quality Assurance teams use the Fix Version field for the following purposes:

  • Developers:

    • Fix Version field is the one that shows up on individual tickets in the backlog view.

    • For Story tickets, the Fix Version is used for soft guidelines for what is targeted for what release.

    • For Bug tickets, the Fix Version is used to know which bugs are priority based on where we are in the release cycle.

  • Product Managers:

    • To prioritize backlog.

    • To estimate/plan what Story tickets ship in what release.

  • Release Manager:

    • Follow status of resolved, open and submitted tickets for current release.

    • Compose various release metrics.

  • Quality Assurance:

    • Prioritize testing of tickets and associated PRs for the next release.

    • Assess completeness of a release before cutting final.

    • Track when changes actually went in, to help investigate bugs and expected behavior.
