disabling "on the fly" creation of new components and/or versions

 Currently version or component can be created by project admins from create or edit (if version or component is available on the screen) without going to project admin screen. Want to disable this feature Creation of version(s) or component from the create or edit screen. 

For creation version or component should be allowed only from project admin screen. Is this possible?: If yes, please help.

Thanks in advance for the help.

The "on the fly" create option for Components and Versions is a feature from JIRA 6.3 onward and project admins should be able to do this.

Disable "on the fly" create option is a pending request https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-42068

Workaround Sols:

  1. To prevent the users entering data wrongly in the issues, you can validate the versions and components.
  2. Or you can hack the version velocity template file at <<jira_installation_path>>\atlassian-jira\WEB-INF\classes\templates\jira\issue\field\versions-edit.vm
    change data-create-permission="$!{createPermission}"  to data-create-permission="false"

But I strongly suggest not to change any default files.

Thank for your response. It is working
