Jira: Admin Menu still not visible

Unfortunately, this solution does not work for me:


Is there anything else I should do to make the Admin Menu showing by default when Admin logging in to JIRA?

Hi there,

Can you please clarify if your Admin section is physically missing, or if you simply want it to be the default page in Jira?

The URL provided from Menus Missing from Jira Administration Panel appears to no longer be functioning, but this particular error was that particular sections are missing, but not the entire menu.

Can you go to Manage Add-ons (http://<baseurl>/plugins/servlet/upm/manage/all) and Search All for System Admin Menu Sections plugin and let me know if it's enabled?

Please also send us a screenshot of the issue on yyour end.

Kind regards,


Thank you Shannon.

It's enabled now. It's persistent now when I login as admin.

Previously, after I login as Admin I had to add admin at the end of the basedurl

for example: https://<basedurl>/secure/admin

I re-installed it.

Hi there,

Thank you for letting me know! Glad it's now working for you. To be clear, was it the re-enabling of the add-on that made this work again for you?

Kind regards,


Hi Shannon,

Yes it was. 

Best regards,


Thank you for confirming that, WN!

Take care, and have a pleasant rest of your week.
