The documentation above says that the JIRA Administrators permission does not include the JIRA Users permission, which counts toward the JIRA license total. However, when I create a group with only the JIRA Administrators permission, users added to that group increment my license count. Is the documentation wrong, or am I misunderstanding?
The rule for consuming a licence is "the user can log in", not "is a user".
Administrators can always log in, so they count towards the licence. Even if they're not in the user group.
The documentation used to be clear on this, but it seems that an edit has made it unclear at some point.
