Hi @Ravina Mahajan 

In Jira cloud basically there no Jira System Administrators and Jira Administrators it has only Administer Jira global permission.

The basic group structure is as follow

administrators - Grants access to all applications and their administration features (excluding Site administration)

jira-administrators - Grant access to the administration features of Jira

jira-software-users - Grants access to Jira Software

site-admins - Grants access to all applications, their administration features and Site administration, which includes managing users and bills

atlassian-addons-admin - This group is managed internally by Atlassian Connect and can’t be manipulated via the UI. It should not be possible to modify membership of this group or add it/remove it from the JIRA Administrators global permission.

Hope this will help.
