I can't create a new project.

I have checked that I have Administartor permissions. When I go to the Administration -> Projects like the how to describes to but I don't have the "Add Project" button on the far right. What do I have to turn off/on to enable this?

For reference I have attached a screen shot of the project list and my permissions to help the debugging.

Do you have access to both JIRA (Issues) & Confluence (Wiki) in the Application Access admin screen? You need to have access to all of the apps in your instance to create projects.

I did have access to both JIRA and Confluence, but installed in our system was also Fish-Eye and Bamboo. As soon as I gave myself access to those as well it gave me the create project option. Thanks for the help!
