Permission to create new Project

Hi to you all,

Is there a permission in JIRA to create Projects, or this is allowed only to Admins?

Thanks in advance

I'm afraid it's admin-only in the main product.  Atlassian do have open issues about delegating permissions more, and they're working on them too, but at the moment, you need add-ons to be able to delegate project-creation.

Ok, do you know which addons?

Currently, only JIRA admin can create issues, you can vote here - https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-1431

It's been 13 years!

Always something more important on the list...

Indeed but there are certain issues like the one above and setting "default values for system fields" that really need attention.

There are thousands of issues open, and people have different opinions on which ones matter more.
