How to give users permission to create projects?

I installed JIRA 7.x and it all works fine. As admin i can create projects and so on. But i can't find the option to set the permission to create a project to some user. I checked all permissons, but if i login as normal user (which should have the right to browse projects) he can't create projects. The user only sees projects and can create issues.

Is there any other option to set, so that the user can create a project?

What i want is, that i will create a project role "Project Admin" which are only project leaders has. Only this group should be able to create projects.

Can anyone tell me, how to do this?

If you want a user to be able to create projects you have to include this user in a group that has JIRA Administators global permission.

Out of the box you can't. However, we at Wittified built which allows you as an admin to create a set of local templates (allowing you to standardize the setups as well as the admin - focus on configuring the system). Once you've given a subset of your users the create project from template permission they can create the projects from the templates.
