Hi Team,

I cannot see create option under Administration -> Projects.

Please help in adding project to JIRA.

Hi Pragati, 

It's probably because you don't have the correct permission in JIRA. To be able to create projects you'll need to have the Global JIRA Administrator permission

You can refer your administrator to the following resource ok this community to find out how he can either give you the JIRA Admin permissions or install a plugin that'll give you a bit more fine grained permissions: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/JIRA-Core-questions/How-to-give-users-permission-to-create-projects/qaq-p/112071

Best, 

Maarten

Not quite.  The idea of "admins create project" is right, but there are two ways to do it - you need to be either a JIRA administrator or a System administrator.
