Restricting jira administrator functions

Hi All

In our organisation we have around 10 jira administrators.

Is there a way I can restrict the admins to only perform user account management (i.e. create users or create groups) and not allow them to make any configuration changes to workflows/schemes etc etc..

Have you considered to delegate user management to Active Directory or LDAP server?

Hi Jozef

We do have LDAP authentication on jira however users still need to be created on jira. Once account is created the password is autheticated via ldap.

Is this what you meant?

This was legacy LDAP usage. On newer JIRA version (4.3+?) there is embedded Crowd functionality with full LDAP support - so you can manage users/groups fully in external directory. That way your HR administrators would not require access to JIRA administration.
