We are almost done with configuring JIRA for test management; there are a few other things that are left and those are setting up versions and components.
Versions are useful for software projects to identify different releases of software.

JIRA allows you to create various versions and assign them to individual issues.
Go to Project Administration | Version, enter the Name of the version, a Description, Start date, and Release date, and click on the Add button:

Go to Project Administration | Components, enter the Name of the component...
