Is there a document that articulates and clearly captures what permissions a JIRA project admin has?

I'm not sure if this has been asked before but I'd like to be able to refer to a single resource that tells me what access rights a JIRA project admin has to make modifications and conversely what  modifications are solely a JIRA application admin function.

The stock answer for this from JIRA 3.6 until JIRA 7.2 is that a project admin can administrate

  • Users and groups in project roles
  • Components
  • Versions
  • Bits of JIRA Agile/Software

7.3 granted project admins some control over workflows.  7.4 allows more, including some field and screen stuff.  As long as the config is only for their project.

Thanks @Nic Brough [Adaptavist]. Do you know if you can manage permissions e.g: add role to browse project, add role to create issues etc. if a permission scheme has been dedicated to a project? I'm guessing not, considering as a project admin I can't but asking anyway.

No, you can't do that, and I don't think you ever will be able to - the delegated permissions are creeping into the permission schemes, so you'd need to keep them locked to prevent a project admin granting themselves all admin rights.
