I have a lead developer that i need to have access to create new versions within a project. I've found that currently the only way to do this is to grant them a Jira-Admin privilage.
I want to be able to give them the ability to create a new version, but without having to grant them a full admin permission.
Is this possible?
You need to grant the lead developer Administer project permission, not Jira admin permission. It is different. You can see here what a user with Administer project permission can do. https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver073/managing-project-permissions-861253293.html
Maybe it is fine for you
I agree with Matt here, permissions need to be more granular than this. We have a team specific to managing releases at an enterprise level. Having that team able to manipulate all projects that utilize the release system at an Admin level project to project is way too much access all at once.
My team is also dealing with this problem. We want to give someone with limited permissions access to create versions, but they do not need to be administering the whole project. Has there been any movement toward more granular permissions for this. Is there somewhere where I can submit a change request to Atlassian for this?
