Is there any way to have multiple On Demand jira users with permission to add users, but without full administrator rights ?

It would be very useful to allow project admins to create new users who have access only to their project.

However, it seems there is no permission to add/invite users that is separate from full administrator rights.

Is there some other way to achieve this goal ?

Hi, unfortunately only JIRA administrators can add/remove users.

Take note that you can split JIRA administration into system administration and jira administration to reduce some risks. The JIRA administrator doesn't need full permission, such as re-indexing, import/export etc.

Thanks. Does this apply to On Demand ?

In my On Demand instance there is a "system-administrators" group (and "confluence-administrators" group) in which the only member is "sysadmin" with the email address "noreply@atlassian.net". So there does not seem to be a way to add anybody to those groups.

I created the On Demand instance and was the first user in the system, and I seem to have rights like re-index, but I am only a member of the "administrators" group.

When I view global permissions, I see only the following available:

JIRA Administrators

JIRA Users

Browser Users

Create Shared Objects

Manage Group Filter Subscriptions

Bulk Change

For OnDemand, the administrator is already restricted down. Atlassian is the only 1 that has full access on those platforms.
