Releases in scrum

Releases are created by a product owner and contain user stories, sometimes from multiple products, that form the release backlog.

A release is bounded by start and end times and is used to organize the effort of the release teams working on user stories. Typically, the product owner creates the release teams and decides when the release is complete enough for delivery to a customer. A release can use multiple teams.

Prerequisites

Before attempting to create a release, make sure you have created the appropriate stories and scrum tasks and associated them with one or more products.
