Is there a way that users can requests permission to projects and a notification is sent to project admin user and this one can approve or not the permission via email or click a link?
We have accomplished it by creating a front end portal that handles all the request access for us (the portal supports 7 different tools and one of them is JIRA).
There is a public signup in JIRA, you can use that. What Jonas suggested above is for notification and is somehow similar to yours (just permission).
Badges are a great way to show off community activity, whether you’re a newbie or a Champion.Learn more
