Permission to create a version without administer project

Is it possible give single users the permissions to create new versions without give the "Administer Projects" permission?

I don't think so. Versions are being added in the "Administration" screen which is being controlled by the "Administer Projects" permission.

Gabrielle is right, it's a simple permission, you need admin-projects.

Please have a look at Version Manager for JIRA. This allows to manage versions without need for administer project permission.

Yes, this add-on looks like what I'm looking for. But it is not available for Cloud instances

Before I set-up a dirty trick (like a script using the REST API and a generic administrator account), is there any solution for cloud instances?

If you have Confluence, How to create a self service create project page is an example of providing specific admin capabilities to non-admins. Same technique works for versions.

Please have a look at Version Manager for JIRA plugin. This plugin allows you to delegate create, edit and release of version to user or project role independend from administer project permission.
