The upcoming Version 2.0 of Delegated Project Admin Pro for JIRA add-on, along with Wittified's Delegated Project Creator for JIRA add-on, addresses much of the functionality requested in JRA-3156 which is one of the highest voted tickets for JIRA.
With this add-on you can make some JIRA Administrator capability available to trusted Project Administrators, with the assurance that changes affect only the project being modified and individual changes can be rolled back. This allows your JIRA Administrators to be freed up from the simpler project administration tasks, while allowing Project Administrators to safely make changes that do not require comprehensive knowledge of how workflows and schemes work.
Some of the Use Cases you find may helpful are described below.
- Allow Project Administrators to switch from one scheme to another to customize their project's permissions, notifications, workflow, etc. (This is especially helpful if the JIRA Administrator has set up schemes to support several common types of projects their users may need.)
- Allow Project Administrators to do some simple changes to their projects, such as adding issue types or adjusting project permissions and notifications.
- Allow Project Administrators to completely administer their project (e.g., adding/removing fields, modifying the workflow, adjusting screens, etc.) but in a way that ensures that only their project is affected and they or a JIRA Administrator can undo those changes if problems arise.
- Allow Project Administrators to add or remove options from a field of type "Select List (single choice)."
