JIRA Admin

Hi Folks,

I've just downloaded JIRA 7.5, and I'm, so far, the only user.

How do I become an Administrator of the System?


Thanks for your help.

Please note that in the 'user management' section, I've my full name, user name, under group name as 'jira-administrator, under Application, it's shown as JIRA Software and under Directory, it's shown as 'JIRA Internal Directory'.

If you are the only user, then you are the system administrator, as the system is initialised using the first account you create.  But you should see that in your groups.
