I also have a user who has the Administration role in a project but can't edit/add components. The project lead and system admins have the rights, but not users with only Admin rights. According to the doco all a user needs is Admin rights to a project: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirasoftwareserver0814/organizing-work-with-components-1043892962.html.
Any suggestions? thanks,
In our case the user who wanted to edit the components had the Administration role in a project (as is required). However the Administration role did not have the "Administer Projects" permission in the Permission scheme.
Once this permission was granted to the Administration role the user could edit the components.
