Project Lead - Managing components

Hi

I would like "project lead" have the capability to manage components(add,edit,delete) for the project to which they are assigned as lead.

I created a user and assigned that user as project lead.

a) I do not see any admin link for the user. Does assigning user as project lead does not give them admin rights on the project.

When I click on projects->ProjectA I can see "Summay", "Issues", "Components", "Popular Issues", "Labels". When I click on components I just see read only view of components.

How can I have Project lead manage components in the project? Please let me know.

Thanks

Abe

You need to give Administer projects permission to the user. By default the project role "Administrators" have that permission, so you might assign that user to this project role "Administrators". If you have modified permission scheme you must check which user / project role has the administration right.

Assigning a user as project lead does not include any administration rights.

you have to give Administer Projects permission to that user

check this document to manage project permission

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Project+Permissions

and check this document to know how to add component

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Defining+a+Component

But what is the project lead than supposed to lead / do??

The project lead role is just there so that user can get tickets auto-assigned. For example, you might use the project lead as the default assignee for all new issues, with the exception of issues which use a certain component (which get assigned to the Component Lead instead).
