Administrator & System Adminsitrators - how to create later

Hi All....

I have been trying to create a system administrator following this:

  1. Create a new group (e.g. called jira-system-administrators).
  2. Add to the jira-system-administrators group everyone who needs to have the JIRA System Administrators permission.
  3. Grant the JIRA System Administrators permission to the jira-system-administrators group.
  4. Remove the JIRA System Administrators permission from the jira-administrators group.
  5. (Optional, but recommended for ease of maintenance) Remove from the jira-administrators group everyone who is a member of the jira-system-administrators group.

from:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Global+Permissions

Steps 1 and 2 all done.... but I don't understand step 3.... maybe its just been a long day and I am missing the obvious...

Many thanks

Nick

Hi Nick, it means grant the system administrator permission that it is inside the Global Permissions to the jira-system-administrators group.

Global Permissions is inside the Administrator section.

OK... now I feel very stuipid!!!! Laughs at self.....

Thanks Ramiro
