Enable team members to manage versions effectively

Hi there 

I'm being informed by my company that there currently isn't a way to allow different team members to manage versions who are not project administrators.

I recall some time prior that Atlassian did allow different roles to be mapped to different project level permission schemes to help manage this better. 

I also recall that previously, the manage versions capability wasn't always rolled up into the Administer projects  permission. There used to be a manage versions permission.  Did this go away at some point? 

Do I have any other options to help team members graduate from just sprint delivery to sprint release capability themselves?

AFAIK, it has always been >= project admin. if you trust your member to manage a release maybe you can trust to be a project admin?

I've just realised that there are other threads about this same topic.  A popular view is that it would make sense to have the manage versions under its own permission so that members don't necessarily have full access to all other administrative privileges too.

Not surprised. I expect there is a suggestion at requesting this. You might check there and if found vote for it. If not, you may wish to use the Feedback link to share your input with Atlassian.
