Why can't my team create company managed projects unless they are site admins?

i don't understand the permissions. unless they are site admins, users cannot 1) invite their team to jira to collaborate 2) create company managed projects. How can i make sure everyone gets access in the organisation but without giving everyone advanced admin rights?

Welcome to the Community!

To create a "company managed" project, you have to be a Jira admin.  Site admins can grant that right, and usually have it themselves.

But the point of "company-managed" is that teams can't diverge from any standard or shared ways of doing things, and that means a small team of admins control all the aspects of the projects that need to be done in particular ways to enable cross-team working and consistency.  (There's still plenty of config within projects that the project admins can configure - users, versions, components, boards etc, but they can't go off and randomly create fields or processes that could conflict with your standards)

If you want to let your people do everything differently team-by-team, that's fine, but you should (and can) only do that with team-managed projects.

Company-managed project configuration is limited to Jira admins.
