How to grant READ ONLY access to a some JIRA administrators ?

We might have to share the administration configuration  , so some user should be able to see the administration screens without having the possibility to change anything.

Could you please answer if we can create a new group that will provide the read-only access on administration?

Not possible, as far as I know.

Perhaps you could get your webserver to block POSTs (but not GETs) on admin page URLs that should be read-only. Something like this (with Apache mod_rewrite; untested):

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/secure/admin/IndexAdmin.jspa RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} POST
RewriteCond %{X-AUSERNAME} jimmy
RewriteRule ^ /banned_operation.html?user=%{X-AUSERNAME} [R=302,QSA]

Jeff is right, it's impossible without rewriting the core of JIRA's admin access scheme.

Your users can see a lot of the config from the project headers though.

Jeff & Nic Thanks for your promt answer.

Is this possible in Confluence and Bit Bucket  to give the read only access permission to Administrators ?
