How do I change the JIRA administrator?

You can create a new user or add an existing user to jira-administrators group

If you want to change the administrator, you will need to first add the new administrator to the jira-dministrators group (see here) and then, after log into your JIRA with this new admin and confirm that he has Administration rights, remove the old admin from the same group.

Hope it helps!


So then they become the main JIRA Online administrator?  I too need to change this to someone other than me.  I was just the one who set up our JIRA instance.
