Hello Moritz,

sorry for the late answer.

Looks like you have to modify the ACL settings for your second-admin (in 
my case it is admin1).

Change ACL for Application:
* admin1 -> edit

Change ACL for Services
* admin1 -> edit

With this configuration I could add Services to applications that were 
not created by admin1. AAnd also handle it via groups.

I tried your cenario. It world in my case.

If you need more help you can contact me.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
