Since the plugins are basically components in the JENKINS project, a user requires admin rights to the project in order to create sprints. My question is: Is this implemented by design? Are we expected to handle our planning outside of the main JIRA? If so, can you recommend a solution that would allow us to link the JIRA items with some external planning?

This hasn't really come up before, probably since we've long been on a much older release of Jira and sprints are a fairly recent addition.

I'm only aware of Blue Ocean (and to a limited extent the security team) using this functionality so far.

I think I created and started sprints for Blue Ocean in the early days, and I'm willing to do this for you as well. Of course, this doesn't scale, so if it catches on with others, we'll need an alternative, but I'd be surprised if that happened. Most maintainers probably make do with a prioritized board or similar, and release when it makes sense.
