We have a 10-user license for Confluence and Jira. We have created 10 users in each one, but Jira says that we have exceeded our license for Jira. It appears that Jira counts Administrator as one of the users? That doesn't seem right...
That is absolutely correct and as it should be. There is a logical flaw in the expectation that an administrator should be able to access an application without a license. A license qualifies as a ticket for admission and an instance cannot be administrated without access.

I would be happy to move to the Cloud version, but we are a NERC-CIP installation and Atlassian does not yet offer a Cloud solution that will pass audit for us.
