The JIRA administrator can delegate the creation of new projects to the people that are requesting them. Setting permissions is as simple as selecting the JIRA group(s) that should have access to create templatized projects.
Standardize your projects
The Delegated Project Creator for JIRA (formerly Project Creator for JIRA) add-on allows you to define project templates for your commonly used project scheme configurations. Create as many different templates as you need to handle new project requests. Customize your templates by choosing your:
Field Configuration schemes
Issue Type Screen schemes
Issue Security schemes
Create new projects with ease
Once a user has been empowered to create a new project from a template, they simply go to the Projects dropdown and select "Create new project from template." Specify the project name and project key, select the project and click Create.
Who is the target audience?
JIRA administrators and users that belong to the groups to whom the JIRA administrators have given the permission to create projects from templates.
