Create a normal user.  Then, depending on the admin level desired:

  1. For a project admin, add them into the project roles or groups such that they match the permission rule for "project admin"
  2. For JIRA admin, get an existing admin to add it to the JIRA administrator's group.
  3. For System admin, get an existing system admin to add it to the system administrator's group. (Note, this won't happen on Cloud, it's reserved for Atlassian support)
