As a JIRA/GH administrator, I would like to be able to specify who is allowed to create and start a sprint independently from the "Administer Projects" JIRA permission

      This feature is now available for both JIRA Software Cloud and JIRA Software Server.
      The server release version is 7.1.0, please see the server release notes for further details.

      Previously we had discussed the intention to consolidate the add or remove an issue from sprint into the Manage Sprints permission. However, we have determined that this will not be a workable solution for many of you. More details in comment #872704 below.

      Kind regards,

      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Software Server. Using JIRA Software Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      At the moment, creating and starting a sprint (from the Rapid Board) is based on the "Administer Projects" permission. This does not make much sense for us, as the JIRA/GreenHopper administration is not done by the Scrum team themselves, but they need to be able to manage their sprints on their own.

      Therefore, we need to specify which users/groups/project roles are allowed to start a sprint independently from the "Administer Projects" permission.
      To be honest, the reliance of GreenHopper on JIRA permission feels often inadequate and I hope that you find a way to manage GreenHopper permissions independently (this relates to GHS-1787, GHS-3928).
      As long as this is not possible, maybe there is a way to at least separate starting a sprint from the "Administer Projects" permission? E.g. by adding a "Manage Projects" permission in JIRA that allows some of the things included in the "Administer Projects" permission?
