Managing Sprint Activities for Non Project Admins

We have several projects in Jira using Agile. Within those projects there are different teams each with their own releases towards the main project.

I’d like to give those teams (their managers at least) the ability to manage their sprints (create/schedule sprints, versions etc) WITHOUT going to the extent of making them project administrators as this is a bit too permissive.

--> How is it done?

It seems (based on the messages) that there is some assumption that if you manage sprints you ALSO are trusted to do a whole lot more in Jira.  This is not the case.

It gets a bit more weird. If I create a board as a user, the admin cannot see it. If I try and share with the admin, the admin does not show up on the pull-downs of users/groups to share with. This means that really the admin has to do everything. or ... everyone needs to be admin? :-/ The original question still applies. Thanks, Mike
