Administrator Responsibilities: Part 2

Types of Admins

Jira and Confluence admins fall into one of the following categories:

System Level Administrators can perform every administration function. This level only exists in Server and Data Center. For Cloud, Atlassian is your system administrator.

System admins do things like:

  • Configure the mail server

  • Configure background services

  • Run health check tools

  • And more

Application Level Administrators can perform most administration functions like:

  • Creating projects and spaces

  • Managing users

  • Creating blueprints and global templates

  • Installing themes

  • Granting permissions

  • And more

Jira Project Level Administrators can manage settings for individual Jira projects. They can:

  • Create and manage components

  • Create and manage versions

  • Manage users in a specific project

  • And more

Confluence Space Level Administrators can manage settings for global spaces. They can:

  • Create space templates

  • Select space themes (look and feel)

  • Manage users in a specific space

  • And more

Admin Abilities

While the abilities differ, a user can be multiple types of administrators at the same time. For example, an application administrator may also be a project administrator.

All users have a “cog” or “gear” icon at the top right of every Jira or Confluence page. The available options in the menu depend on the application and admin type however.
