Thanks for voting and commenting on this issue. Your feedback is key to helping us understand how you use JIRA so we can continue improving your experience. We have reviewed this issue over the last few days.
Simplifying project setup, configuration, and maintenance is one of the JIRA team's top priorities right now. We are in the early stages of a big investment in making it easier to get started with a JIRA project and maintain a large number of projects at scale.
It's important to understand that we rarely try to implement individual features from jira.atlassian.com, but instead take a holistic look at the problem and use feedback from the comments here and a dozen other sources of customer input to solve the core problems.
The ability to create new projects without full JIRA administrator permission is one of the initial areas we will investigate, so this is a high priority for our team. While we cannot provide any information on a planned solution or release date, we will update this issue as we progress.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or feedback.
