What is the difference between JIRA Administrator and JIRA System Administrator?

The documentation is rather vague on this:


  • JIRA System Administrators: Permission to perform all JIRA administration functions.
  • JIRA Administrators: Permission to perform most JIRA administration functions. 

 

could someone provide a more specific answer?

This is where the new documentation for version 7 seems to be letting Atlassian down, in my opinion.

See the rather better doc at https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira064/managing-global-permissions-720412521.html#ManagingGlobalPermissions-sysadmin

For version 7, you'd want to add something about the admin access to "applications" (i.e. Service Desk and Software) which is similar to "add ons", but other than that, the 6.4 docs cover the difference properly.

This page is helpful for understanding the answer to this question in JIRA Cloud.
