JIRA Project Admin doesn't have board admin privileges on boards within that project


I've created a project and added 3 people as project admins, however, they are unable to configure the boards within that project unless they are also added as a board admin. According to this page the project admin privileges should translate to the board. 

"To configure the board and any of its settings, you must be either:

  • project administrator for the location of the board
  • board administrator for the board itself"

Anyone have any insight? Thanks

The document you added is for Jira Cloud. I understand that you use Jira server. Check server's documents:

It says:

"You must be a Jira administrator or a board administrator for the board to modify its configuration."


Haha whoops, thanks!
