Is it possible to configure jira in such a way that I can create a new vresion by entering it in the "fixed version" field?

You can't "configure" this, the functionality is not there.

You'll need some code, but I don't think *just* a post-function will do it because the version field requires you to select a value from a list and has no functionality for adding new versions. You'll need to think of a way to catch the data from the user (e.g. another custom field where they can enter the name of a new version), and then create it and probably clear the custom field, and check the admin rights, and re-apply the new version to the issue. I'm afraid it's not as simple as it might seem.

thanx. that helps. So I will create a script which makes sure that there is alway an available version the user can select...

you can create by using post function.

let me know if you need any help to develop this function.

you mean, by creating a script which automagically creates new versions?

yes, you are right?
