External Facing Release Names

It would be useful to be able to define external release names which are used in Report generation. Our Engineering team uses a naming convention for releases that would mean nothing to the rest of our business. At the moment, whenever a report is created, it requires renaming all the releases in Aha.

    Thank you for your idea. We would recommend creating a custom field to capture the engineering release name. This would allow you to use the release name field for a name the rest of the business would understand. If you are using Jira or Rally, our new enhanced integrations would allow you to map this custom field to the release name in the development system. Other development systems will allow this as we migrate them to our Integrations 2.0 platform.

    Given the suggestion above and other priorities, we are unlikely to implement this idea at this time. We hope you understand.

    Custom field seems to work well for this.
