I am the administrator in Jira and created filters with my account and when I try to edit my filters I get a login page that says
"'Sysadmin' does not have permission to access this page.
If you think this message is wrong, please contact your JIRA administrators."
I was scratching my head on this one since I couldn't add the Jira-administrators group to the Jira-users group so I had to add the admin account to a group in the jira-users group. This is somewhat confusing since the administrator group should be able to do anything as described in the global permissions section of Jira. Go figure.
if memory serves, JIRA-USERS helps distinguish between active and inactive users. if JIRA-USERS member, you're active and count against your 50 user license. if not, you're not active and don't count against the license. this is great in the case of someone leaving the company, but you don't want to delete the user. simply remove him from JIRA-USERS and you have that slot back.
as far as admins are concerned, consider the case where a JIRA admin is a member of another department (IT, let's say) who is responsible only for JIRA user management but doesn't use JIRA for issue creation/management. in this case, he would be a member of SYSTEM-ADMIN but not JIRA-USERS which means he can still do his admin stuff but doesn't count against your 50 user license.
