Estimates For JIRA Admin

I am curious if anyone has created any documentation or come across any sites for standard LOV or time estimates for "standard" JIRA Admin job functions. For example, creating a new project and schemes, creating a new workflow, etc. Something similar to this blog post that describes how to document JIRA, but for estimating the LOV.

This document is useful, but I couldn't find similar ones.

Once we have some data in JIRA we can use the Velocity (and other) charts, but that will come after a few sprints.

Any tips you can provide are appreciated! Thanks in advance!

For an admin, I would say it's next to impossible to say what a time estimate is for the work. For example, a new project could take 5 minutes, or 5 weeks. It all depends on what you are doing (level of customization, number of custom fields, number of contexts, the new workflow or existing, heavy transition requirements or none, etc., etc., etc.), number of instances and what you have to do with instances. Some folks "Jira admin" is solely in the app. Others that also includes server, hardware, OS, network, DB, etc.

You have to make your own setup, because what I have to do for my instances and even across my instances are radically different then what you may have to do.
