I have a JIRA System Admin, who should be able to create JIRA Admins.
Due to our specific project need, which is beyond my control, the JIRA Admins must be able to just create\delete user details but not modify them. Specifically we do not want the admins to change the username of the users.
Please let us know if there are any solutions\workarounds or any plugins which can achieve this functionality.
If there were plugins that could do it, I wouldn't have said "no". Admins have admin rights, and that includes updating user profiles. Atlassian are looking at making it more configurable, which will lead to many different types of admin, but I suspect the right to edit users will still be bundled with the right to add and delete them (it's a very odd thing to want to add users but not update them. What happens when your admins mis-spell something?) There is an option other than code - hook JIRA up to a user directory system that can handle your requirements. I'm not sure if you could hack an LDAP service to allow "add but not edit", but it probably would be easier than trying to wedge this into JIRA
Oops - another option would be to downgrade your admins to ordinary users and set up a system that can automatically create users without allowing edit. I've done that as a JIRA project before. Needs, a bit of code to handle user-create as a post-function and we did it with an email handler too, but it works well.
