I am the new admin for JIRA. The previous admin granted me permissions but I do not have the rights? How is this done?
I sent an email to the site administrator. The email looped back to your group distro?
There are two permissions for being an administrator in Jira.
Jira System Administrator
The former is the permission that give you complete control over administration and the latter is a limited role as administrator. The default setting is to include both permissions in jira-administrators group, meaning if you belong to the jira-adminsitrators group you should have complete permission.
Which permissions were you granted?
These two are shown under Administration > System > Global permissions
The cog shows both for the Jira System Admin and the Jira Admin, it does not mean you have the full permission to administer the system. Although, you are right since the cog wont show unless you have at least one of the two global permissions required.
