Administrator has full access to:
but we only need it to be able to manage users only (user creation, deletion, blocking, adding to projects)
Below is a screenshot from the admin control panel.
We only need access to manage users.
Admin rights can't be broken down that much.
Jira has three types of administrator - system admin, jira admin and project admin. System admins can administrate everything, Jira admins have a smaller set of rights and project admins can only administrate the projects they have permissions for.
Note, on Cloud, only Atlassian can get System admin rights, we end-users can not.
If it were a Cloud install, you have the option of giving people "site admin", but that would let them add themselves to your systems too.
On server, you could move to using an external user directory, but again, people with the rights to admin your user directory could add themselves.
