default project roles not being set up

I recently installed a try-out installation of JIRA on a Linux server. The documentation ( ) states, that "When you install JIRA, three project roles are automatically created:"

Project Role



Typically contains people who administer a given project.


Typically contains people who work on issues in a given project.


Typically contains people who log issues in a given project.

However, in my installation, only the "Adminstrators" project role was present. I added "Developers" and "Users" manually (since that also fits my purposes). However I am wondering if I did something wrong during the installation and whether I should be worried?
