We have several projects sharing the same JIRA project and I want to give the various project managers the ability to create their own workflows for their projects without having access to the other administration fuctions that a Global JIRA administrator has.
We are running JIRA v4.1.2#531.
Is this possible?
I don't think that is possible. You will need to look at JIRA global permissions. There are basically two levels which you should be looking at
1. JIRA system administrators
2. JIRA administrators
Take a look at the documentation available at
However, as an alternative, you can setup a development area where project managers have system administrator access. They can use it as a sandbox area where they create their workflows. They can then mail the xml to the system administrator of the production system who can apply the new workflow to their respective projects.
Do you have Greenhopper - If you have Greenhopper you could upgrade JIRA and the project administators can design their own boards with Greenhopper Simplified workflow.
Otherwise there is no way to give them access to only the workflow part. And they need to know what they do so they dont mess up for the other projects as well...
