Is it possible to customize the JIRA Application Administrators to only allow administration of the global workflow schema's and use the System Admin group for all admin functions?

This has been asked, requested, discussed, battled upon, debated, (put more words here) in so many years since JIRA was created. Want to join the fun? Take a look at this ticket https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-3156

There are a few add-ons mentioned on that ticket too, try them out.
