Project administrator & permission to edit project-specific workflows etc.

How can a JIRA administrator give a project administrator the permission to modify project-specific workflow(s) in his project? Or the permission to create project-specific issue types? ...

Dear Thomas,

I am afraid that this may not be possible in JIRA. Please note that the project administrator (the users which have the Administer Project permission) only have the ability to configure a project specific configuration, such as the project components/versions, project role members, project name, etc. Please see the documentation relating to the permission scheme:
- https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Project+Permissions

On the other hand, modifying an existing workflow configuration or adding a new issue type requires at least the jira-administrators permission, which is stated in the following documentation:
- https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Global+Permissions

Though it's not much, I hope that the info above helps to clarify the matter.

Thanks!

Dear Ahmad,

thanks for the reply.

But - this is a pity that a project admin can not edit his own project workflow ...

In our company we have no employee only to administer JIRA. Therefore, the project administrators themselves must be able to handle all project-specific work.

Regards, Thomas

And I know of at least one competitive product that allows this.

You can use Greenhopper simplified workflow if you use greenhopper. Project admins will be able to create status in greenhopper though with some limitations.
