You may want to review this document and see if you can do any of the steps to retrieve or gain admin access.

Thanks Bryan.

Unfortunately, i did not specify i am in the cloud mode.

So I don't have access, i think, to the DB

The only way to get admin on Cloud is to get another admin to add you.

If you've lost all your administrators, your best bet is to raise a support request with Atlassian, as they'll need to change your account to a site-admin.
