This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Manage users and groups
I am currently the admin - I signed up and established the JIRA cloud instance but I also want to be a user (login, create, edit issues as a user and not admin.)
I tried simply creating a user with a different login but the same email - wasn't allowed. Is it possible to create a user with the same email address but a different login? What is the recommended practice?
Most of us don't have dual accounts - we log in as a user who is in the jira-users group, and also in the admin groups. When we need to do admin work, we hit the admin menus and JIRA will then do a "websudo" prompt for further authorisation.
Your right to do system admin has no effect or interaction with the issues or projects (and I recommend not using the admin groups in any permissions so that it remains an admin privililge). It really is just the right to do admin stuff.
