can a non jira admin user get access to groovy script runner?

I need a dev to try out some scripts to make zephyr integrate with some custom fields.

Do i have to give him admin access to achieve this ?

Yes. Groovy really is very powerful because it can use most of the internals, and should only ever be used by administrators (because you can, in theory, trust them to know how to avoid doing any damage with it)

You may find it safer to let them work with a dev/test system as an admin, and then promote their work when you've proved it's ok.

Thanks Nic, thought as much
