Allow specific jira admin page access to all users

Hi All,

Is there a way in which I can allow specific jira dmin page access to all users?

Ex: For the moment, http://server.com/jira/secure/admin/user/GroupBrowser.jspais accessible only by jira administrators. However, I want to grant its access to jira users too. Is this possible? (Im well aware of downsides of this too eg: what about internal admin links inside this page? what about page templates what should i be using here ? etc. but despite this, I still need to share one specific admin page to all users)

Hi Boris,

I was able to achieve this by copying relevant jsp files from /secure/admin to outside this locations and correspondingly modified actions.xml.

I want to give Group editing privileges to a custom created group within my organization. This group should not however have regular admin privileges. Thats the reason im looking for exposing certain pages to non admins.

And is it possible to actually edit a groups through you new page ? As the API usually have some checks if the user is admin, etc...

No It is not possible to edit this page as API had some checks exactly like you pointed out.

I might have to consider recreating a plugin to expose this functionality.

So maybe you should unmark you answer as accepted, so probably other users can provide help here (the chance of getting more help on accepted answer is lower I think :) )

In short - this is not possible.

One way you can achieve it is to implement your own page which does the same as the one you've mentioned in your on plugin.

What exactly do you need from the Group Browser page that should be accessible to all users ?
