Replace the current administrator user

In a JIRA cloud version, how can I replace the current administrator user (email) with another one for the same license?

Add the new admin account, then log in as it and remove the old one.  All from the user management section.

When you create the new JIRA administrator account (before deleting the old one) do not you consume another license?

Adding anyone new that can access JIRA is going to take up a spot in your license tier. However, if you are removing the other admin then you will break even.
