How do I assign the permission to create Versions to a permission scheme without granting admin?

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?

Hello,

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

Thanks

This gives more than I was hoping it would but it's fine for what I need. I'll maybe suggest a feature request to break down permissions on a more granular basis

 

Thanks for your help

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.
