Hello @Halton Sangeeth 

Based on the images you provided you are working with a Company Managed project. Only an Administrator of that project has permission to create Releases.

@Rilwan Ahmed 's guidance applies only to Team Managed projects.

Tags in the question says "Team managed projects". Also I could see enable/disable Releases in present in company managed project also. 

Thank you @Trudy Claspill and @Rilwan Ahmed.

I have written an email to Project Administrator to create Version and provide access to me to create Version.

These docs and your responses really helped a lot

I appreciate it

Ah, yes, you are correct that Releases is a feature that can be enabled/disabled. 

While the post is tagged "team managed" the images of the navigation pane posted by @Halton Sangeeth show that it says "company managed".

Hi @Halton Sangeeth ,

Welcome to the community. 

In your team managed project, go to Project settings --> Features --> Releases and enable it. 


Once enabled, go to project --> Releases and create versions.

Please accept the answer if it resolves your issue. 

Hi Rilwan,

Thank you for the Quick response!


I think I am here on this page.. IT is Software project.. Where to enable Version to create it?





Rilwan Ahmed Community Leader May 09, 2022

Hi @Halton Sangeeth ,

Scroll down and see if you get "project settings" button.

To create versions or enable releases, You should be a project admin. 


You can know more about enabling version/Releases in 

Thank you @Rilwan Ahmed 

The problem here is I dont see the 'Project Settings' link to enable it. See Below image from my Project view.. I only see these three under Development



Rilwan Ahmed Community Leader May 10, 2022

@Halton Sangeeth 
Here "Releases" is enabled for your project. As you are not project admin, you don't have option to create versions and you don't see "Project settings" button.
You need to contact the project admins.
