    Use scripting to make JIRA the way you want it

    Built-in administration/maintenance scripts

    Powerful JQL functions

    Scripted Fields

    Useful default functionality for administrators, for instance "su" to another user, copy a project etc etc, or run your own groovy scripts.

    Script Runner ships with a long list of extremely powerful JQL functions. For instance, query for parent tasks on attributes of their subtasks, find all issues that are blocked by unresolved bugs.

    Create your own calculated custom fields with groovy, the simple scripting language. You may never need to learn maven!

    Please let us know if this plugin can achieve the below requirement, "Hi, I have a JIRA System Admin, who should be able to create JIRA Admins. Due to our specific project need, which is beyond my control, the JIRA Admins must be able to just create\delete user details but not modify them. Specifically we do not want the admins to change the username of the users. Please let us know if the plugin can achieve this functionality."

    Excellent plugin. We use it for automatic transitions and to keep database tables in sync with JIRA. For java programmers, groovy is like a walk in the park.

    More details

    Script Runner is a collection of powerful but easy-to-use workflow functions, JQL functions, listeners and services.

    Either augment the ones provided with groovy, or write your own. You may never need to write your own java plugin again.
