How do I know if I am a Jira Admin?

I am new and my manager said he set me up as an Admin so I can add people to Jira Software, Jira Work Management and Confluence (we have a mix of team-managed and company-managed business projects). I see I can add people to individual team-managed projects, but I think I need to go to some Jira Admin panel in Atlassian for the company managed ones, I just don't know how to get there? And how do I know I am on the Atlassian admin home panel? Links or screenshots would be helpful! Thanks.

Hey @L Davis 

Welcome to Atlassian Community !

Navigate to the Jira cloud URL, --> it would look like this. From there check out this screenshot below. Click on the cogwheel symbol you see on the right side of the header of the application. If you see that you have a Jira Admin access.


Hope this helps !

Hi @L Davis,

More to what @Vishwas N M has provided, in the screenshot you will specifically want to navigate to the very first link on that dialog "User Management".  That should open a new tab on your web browser that will navigate directly to the admin page for adding users and groups.

@Vishwas N M and @Jimmy Seddon This was very helpful. When I went to I had to request access. I am now waiting to get approved. Thanks for the link.

@L Davis based on what you said you were able to do I suspect you were made a "Project Administrator" for a number of Team-Managed projects, but not a full "Jira Administrator".

Good Luck!
