How to change administrators


3 answers

Hey Aparna,

                  The user in jira-administrators group will have ability to modify project/board administrators.

If the user who is on leave is the only one in jira-administrators group

Note: Database changes require restart of JIRA Application.


Hope this helps





Hi Aparna,

               Can you expand more on this question. Are you referring to Project Administrators or jira-administrators ?

The administrator in our company has taken an extended leave of absence, and she was the only one with the privileges to create users, and since that time we've needed to add two new employees to our project boards, but are not able to. I'd like to change the administrator from the current one to the two project managers who are in the office.
