Setting up Versions

I've recently started using onDemand for both JIRA and Confluence. I've been trying to setup versions in Jira, but I can't seem to figure out how to do it. Is this feature enabled in the onDemand instances?

I click on the project name from the Projects drop down to end up on the .../browse/[KEY] page. All the documentation suggests I should see a "Versions" box on this page, that I then click "more" on to add/configure versions. However the only regions on this page are

Descriptions, Issues, and Activity Stream

I have the "Summary" tab selected. The other tab options are Issues, Popular Issues, Calendar, and Labels. None of which have anything related to Versions.

Yes, it is enabled on the onDemand instance. Are you a project administrator?

If so, go to Administration > Project where you want to add versions. Then click on the Versions tab. You can add versions there.

Administer > Issues > Projects > Version worked.

Yes I am the project administrator. Thanks for the help.

OnDemand is a bit of a pain this way. The versions tab on the project view doesn't show up until a version gets added. After that, going to the versions tab will display the Manage Versions link (if you have permission) so the next versions can be added more obviously. I usually just use addVersion to avoid all the clicking :).

Sounds like you don't have "project administrator" permissions in the projecy you are looking at. Could you check that?
