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?

We need more granular delegation of permissions.  There are two admin groups.  Admin and System Admin. Can the Admin group be restricted or can permissions be removed such that the Admin can only perform administration of the global workflow schema and let the System Admin retain the highest level of permissions of all administrative tasks.  We want to block Application Admins from user account management and installation of plug-ins.

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.

No.

Not yet anyway, there's an old issue raised for the abilty to delegate more admin rights, but it's not been implemented and Atlassian have only just started hinting that they might move towards it in JIRA 7.1ish (and I do mean "move towards", not "deal with it in full")
