Jenkins Release button disappears when security is enabled

I just installed the Active Directory plugin and set our Jenkins server to secure using it. Then, all of the ‘Release’ buttons on our projects disappeared. If this happens to you, it is probably because you have set ‘Logged-in users can do anything’ and for some reasons ‘anything’ doesn’t encompass ‘Release’!


Jenkins authorization matrix

You should be all set now, and Release buttons will re-appear on the projects where Release build is configured!

Jenkins version 1.626

Edit: I found the bug tracker entry for this, Jenkins bug 28132 and it turns out that the workaround is exactly what I described above :)
