How do I add user properties to a JIRA cloud user?

I currently am using the OnDemand version of JIRA and trying to add properties to my user accounts. The documentation states that I can add properties but I do not see the option to do so. Do I need a special plugin or permission other than administrator? Or is this not supported in the Cloud version?
