I would like to request the "Release" functionality to be a separate item in the permission schema. I want to set a permission to a build group that is separate from the administrator of the project. This is an audit issue for us and should be treated as so. If my team needs to release I have to set them as administrators of the project, which is not a specific project role... it is a build role.
Hope this makes sense. I'm not sure how other teams handle this but this is an audit finding for my team.
@Branden McElveenplease read the requests above.
WE (your customers) NEED a separate permission so that WE can assign a user that is NOT the project administrator the ability to action the "RELEASE" button and release the release.
Example of use would be a Development Manager or a DevOps lead, etc. It has been almost 2 years since you posted your response. Every other week people are up voting this request or adding the same request. Please slot for Jira's next release.

As Jordan stated you can make changes to the permissiosn in the project under permisisons.
In a board, when I have no filter enabled the release link is disabled and greyed out because it shows multiple projects of which I am not admin. When I filter on my project, it is enabled but gives the error below. And indeed, when I have my own board with only my project, I can use that link. Wouldn't that be a bug in JIRA? JSWSERVER-12930 could be related, appears as fixed on cloud but not on server.
Since launching the Jira Software 8.0 and Jira Service Desk 4.0 platform releases in February, many of you have been asking when the next Enterprise release will be so you can take advantage of the m...
