Managing release versions and builds in YouTrack project

Setup: YouTrack 7.0 integrated with Hub

I am unable to find where and how to manage versions within a single project. I am able to add a new version from within an issue (Fix Version -> add value), but there is no way to manage added versions (release or archive them).

I understand you can edit it within the field "Fix Version" bundle, but how do I get the versions overview in time (we do a lot of releases), how to add release date to a version, etc.?


Official comment

Hello Milan,

thank you for your question. You can add release dates to a version when you edit a value in a bundle:

As for the versions overview, please clarify, what exactly do you mean? You can see the list of Fix versions on the same page in Custom fields settings.

I am trying to solve same situation, i would expect i can somewhere not just see the list of versions in the custom settings, but i would expect this list somewhere to be clickable to view actual build version its properties(release date and description) and list of all issues connected to this version/build. I would also be able to change/set the release date as this happens in different moment(actual release of version) then when i am adding issuues to the build(preparing release candidate build for testers)


isn't there a faster way to add the release date to a version?


Hello, I'm very sorry for the delay.

Matej, if the question is still relevant in your case I'd recommend you to have a look at our reports:

CP-Pro, unfortunately, no, that's the only way to add a release date.

In any case, please feel free to file feature requests to our tracker:


Please create a dedicated page for releases where one can create and edit releases, mark them as released, archived, etc.

In addition, create a new permission for managing versions because I don't want to grant edit field permission to everyone who are managing the versions.

Editing fields and managing versions are two very different operations for different groups. Not to mention that is not intuitive to find versions now when are hidden in edit field.
