How can I tell the different permissions granted by a user groups?

When our JIRA Software site was created there were 3 "admin" groups. It's confusing me as to what each does. We have "administrators," "jira-administors," and "site-admins." Thank you.

Hi Sam,

Check out this docs thread

I had read through that page prior to asking my question. I've reviewed it a few more times and it did help clarify the difference between 'administrators' and 'site-admins'. Thank you. 'site-admin' has all the permissions of 'administrators' plus a few extra things (user management and access to billing information). I didn't see anything about 'jira-administrators' Is that not a default group? Is there a way to see what permissions are provided by each group?

See this answers thread.

Peter

Thank you. I did end up digging in and finding out about the global permissions.
