I need to add an administrator. It asks me to choose between admin, Jira admin, & site admin. Please tell me what rights each of these types have.

Hi Krista

Assuming you are using JIRA Cloud, have a look here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/cloud/manage-groups-744721627.html

The "Default Groups and Permissions in Atlassian Cloud" section covers the diifferences between 'administrators' and 'site-admins'.


And this page has information about the 'JIRA Adminstrators' global permission: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/global-permissions-overview-138709.html

Hope this helps a bit.
