Missing System Administrator After Cloud Import

After importing a backup from the cloud version of Confluence into the self hosted version we've found that no user in our system has system administrator permissions. We have access to the database but I'm unsure of the procedure to grant system administrators to one of the existing users. Any help would be appreciated.

Unfortunately we're running we're running 6.0. We're able to log in with various users, its just there is no system administrator to grant that permission to other users.

@Joshua Hull Please see Migrate from Confluence Cloud to Server for other steps you may also need to take to complete the migration.

I look forward to any follow up questions.

Sorry about that - I posted while you were posting. You may use the SQL queries on this page to recover admin permissions:

The password reset docs apply for all versions of 6 (and quite a long way back into v5 if memory serves)
