Original request description:
Currently, I need to give my project manager the jira-administor permission in order for him to create new projects. Unfortunately, this opens up the possibly of him doing other stuff, like changing the mail server. Not that he would, but when you give permissions...
Suggestion: Make Create New Project a separate global level permission.
Those could give you the ability to track project creation events in case there is a concern of having admins creating projects when they shouldn't. That does not prevent the action but at least gives visibility.
