Create a JIRA for it?

I think there's some context missing from the question, I'm not clear on what you're trying to do?

The only thing you can log work against is a Jira.

I was hoping not to have to create a JIRA for Admin time. 

Ah, I see.

Problem is that it doesn't make a lot of sense to log time in a void - you always want to log it against something.

A lot of JIRA admins set up a JIRA or "Atlassian Tools" project in their systems and encourage users to log requests in there.  It's not uncommon to see a permanently open (or weekly or monthly) issue in there to record general admin time in.


I call such a project the metatracker project. Where you track work on a tool in the tool itself.

Look at the Plugin "Meeting Time for JIRA". Maybe it helps you:
