Settings impossible - No one has admin rights

Hello all,

we are currently not getting our Jira board managed. Normally an administrator can change settings and add new members. However, it seems that our board no longer has an administrator. In the past, my account used to be set like this. How do we now get the settings changed again?

Also, we got a mail that we should deposit payment information. However, none of our members have access to such a setting.

Can someone please help us urgently?

Kind regards

Hi @Kevin Junk

are you talking about missing admin rights for a single project or for the whole Jira instance?

Hi @Magdalena Zhisheva 

Thank you for your reply.

I am talking about missing admin rights for a project board within Jira. We have a lot of team members there and none of these members have admin rights. There should be one person who has admin rights? However, that is completely missing. So we can't make any settings on the project anymore.


You know?




Hi again @Kevin Junk , 

Can someone try to access the Project settings -> People and see if there is someone with Admin role.

As well, going to Project settings -> Permission schemes may give you some lights on the admin permissions for that particular project.


In Project settings -> Details you may found if there is ant Project lead and depending on the assigned permission scheme, the project lead may have some admin rights on it.

I hope I helped you.
