Users and groups in Jira

Hi, I would like to know how (if) it is possible to manage users and groups without being an admin.
Since JIRA v7 there are 2 admin-levels: system-admin and a "normal"-admin permission level, but we find that even the "normal"-admin permission level can do way too much. They still can manage issues, screens, workflows etc. We are in the need of a level who has the "Developer"-level and additionally can manage groups and users (create/edit/delete them). Or: a more flexible way to add "permission-items" to create a real own permission-level would have been very welcome.
A quick search in the add-ons or Googling around dind't yield any useful results. Any one out there who had the same experience?

No, it's not possible, you have to be an admin.  Atlassian are working on delegation of permissions, but I'm not even sure this is going to happen.

The best answer is "use roles".  That delegates the admin of user's access to the project administrators without giving them system admin access.

Thank you for your answer Nic!
