How To Know Jira Cloud Version

It is crucial to be aware of the version of Atlassian’s Jira software being used in order to fully utilize its features. To help you with this, we will guide you through the process of identifying your Jira Cloud version in this blog.

Differences between Jira Cloud and Server Versions

Before we get into the steps, it’s crucial to understand the difference between Jira Cloud and Server versions. Jira Cloud is hosted and maintained by Atlassian. This makes it a more suitable option for small to medium-sized businesses that don’t want to maintain their own servers. On the other hand, Jira Server is self-hosted and gives you more control, making it an ideal choice for larger businesses with their own IT departments.

Determining Your Jira Cloud Version

Here’s the thing about Jira Cloud: There isn’t a specific “version” like there is with Jira Server. Because Atlassian handles all the hosting and maintenance, Jira Cloud is continually updated with new features, bug fixes, and improvements. This essentially means that you’re always using the latest version of Jira Cloud.

However, Atlassian does have a change log for Jira Cloud. This is a list of all the updates and changes they’ve made to the software, and it’s continually updated. You can view this change log to see what features and updates have been made available to you.

To view the change log for Jira Cloud, follow the steps below:

    1. Open your web browser and navigate to the Atlassian website.
    2. From the Atlassian website, navigate to the 'Jira Software Cloud' page.
    3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the link to the 'release notes'.
    4. Click on the 'release notes' link to open the change log.

The change log is divided into sections by date, with the most recent updates at the top. Each entry lists the new features or changes, a brief description, and sometimes a link to more detailed information.


Even though there isn’t a specific “version” for Jira Cloud, you can still stay informed about the updates and changes through the change log. Remember, the goal of using any tool is to maximize its benefits, so take advantage of the resources available to you!
