Project admin

To define the user to be a project admin, does he/she need to belong to Jira-administrator group?


I'm ok if project administrators touch some of project content/settings, but as we have common workflow in use I'm uneasy to let project admins to touch common workflows etc.

Hi @jrii 

Project administrators can manage versions, components and manage people in the roles. They need not to be Jira administrators.


Thx, due to this I can remove quite a few people off :)

No.  Project admins are defined by "people who have project admin permission" in the permission scheme for the project.  Not the admin group (although a lot of us tend to add the admin group into a role that gives them project admin as well)

True and was also my mistake, which is now corrected.
