Before I started at my job, the Confluence and Jira system had been set up by a software developer. He created a profile to interact with the source control system GitlLab and gave that profile access as site admin. When I started he informed me that the profile needed to remain a site admin in Jira because of the API's in GitLab being tied to it and they won't work unless the profile is an administrator. Since I have started I noticed several security concerns with our system and have really reigned in control of the system, taking away admin privileges from pretty much everyone. (They were given out like candy prior to me) . This profile that is only supposed to be being used to source control system is now doing things in the system that have been restricted to space admin, like creating Spaces and Projects. Does anyone know if this user profile truly needs to have site admin rights to run the API's or will a lesser security access allow the same things to be accomplished?
