reset system administrator

Help - anyone -

I imported and On Demand JIRA to create a Intranet JIRA server, there was not wizard and no system administrator set up. There is a sysadmin with sysadmin@local email for the one site/system admin. I do have other imported roles for admin, just not sys admin. The system is using a hslq database. I do not see a jira-config-properties file, either. I need to add add-on but can only do so with sysadmin ... how can I reset either the password or the email address - to reset the password?

Thanks for the support!

The export from Cloud creates a standard system admin, which you should use to grant more admin rights to the real accounts you want to have it, and then delete it.
