The previous administrator who originally set up JIRA left the team, and now as new sys-adm I cannot kick him out of the "jira-administrators" group.
Any idea on how to do this?
From Editing group membership:
- If the group has the 'JIRA System Administrators' global permission, you cannot edit its membership unless you have the 'JIRA System Administrators' global permission.
Does your user has the 'JIRA System Administrators' permission? You will need it to remove the membership.
I cannot kick him out of the "jira-administrators" group.
What exactly do you mean by "cannot" here? As in it doesn't let you go to the user administration pages at all? It greys out the options to modify group memberships? You can attempt to modify the groups, but it gives you an error message (what message)? It doesn't react at all? It looks like it does something, but when you go back to check the group is really still there?
You say that your user is in
system-administrators, but I'm wondering if you explicitly added your new sys admin to
jira-administrators as well? You haven't said what version you are using, and I would not be surprised if one of the checks is confused by you having system administration privileges but not basic administration privileges. You cannot remove the last user that has that privilege, so if you have not granted it to yourself, then it won't let you remove it from someone else.
In other words, even though being a system admin allows you to modify permissions, including your own, and even though it implies basic administration in most respects, this particular check may not honour that.
