Using same version in different projects

Is it possible to have projects sharing versions (fix version)?

We currently have a lot of projects that are all part of one "big" project and thus share the same version.

It would seem highly inconvinient to go manually into all those projects and add this version to it.

Is there a way to automate this?

I don't think it's supported out of the box.

You could also just create a custom field and add it to all the issues in the different projects. Then you just need to update the options of this custom field to create a new version. And you can use the custom field in your filters.

@Bob: I don't know if this is still an issue for you, but we have just launched our Version Sync add-on for JIRA to the Marketplace that will do exactly this. It will automatically keep versions in sync between multiple projects, where you have one "Master" project and an unlimited number of linked projects to which version changes are propgated.
