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?
