Change admin username?

When we set initially set up Jira OD, I was the first user and was given the username of "admin". At this point, I am not the true Jira admin and would like to change my username to be my name like everyone else. Possible?

You would actually need to create a new user, bulk assign your issues to the new user, and then delete the admin user.

Cheers,

Gary
