|Summary||0008892: Manager cannot create/manage subprojects|
We are using several projects here in our mantis bugtracker and different development engineers are project managers of their attached projects and others are ordinary developers among these projects.
I've notived that a priviledged project manager is not allowed to create subprojects, but they are allowed to create categories and versions.
Managers should be able to have full access to their projects in that aspect.

I thought that modifying the following config variable in config_defaults_inc.php would do the trick...
Threshold needed to create a new project
$g_create_project_threshold = MANAGER;
However, after doing some investigation it appears that this only applies to a user who has MANAGER privileges at the GLOBAL level...not just at a project level.
In other words, if you have a user who's default GLOBAL access is reporter but he/she manages a particular project, he/she will not be able to add subprojects to that project.
In my opinion, they should...this allows that person the flexibility to structure their subproject they way that they want and greatly reduces the overall administrator's workload.
The above stated is due to the fact that sub-projects in mantis are just handles as standalone projects which are attached to mantis. This has several usability problems and (AFAICS) makes it impossible to make project-creation available to non-Administrator users without lowering the overall security, as proposed by brennerrd. The one advantage of this is (told to me by one of the mantis developers), that some projects can be attached to more then one project. I suggested another solution to achieve that. However to fix this issue in my opinion a major overhaul is required.
i had the same requirement and did the following:
This is an old ticket, but I'm wondering if perhaps the software now supports managers being able to create sub-projects. And if not, is anyone using a solution similar to mkornatzki's?
Still not, sorry.

implementation provides a new threshold to allow creation of subprojects.
