How much will Cloud Shift impact Jira Admin work?

Hi All Community Members,

Today one of my colleagues was discussing the impact of Cloud shift on Jira Admin's work. He was telling that cloud shift will eat the Jira Admin's Job because Jira Admin will not do much except the configuration.

Is it really true. I don't think like that. What do you think? Please share your thoughts with me.

Well depends on how you see a JIRA admin.

If you are only administering the day to day of the tool itself then not much changes. Of course if you also include the server management and DB management, etc.. yeah that's taken care of by AWS now :)

Personally, when I did the migration from Server to Could at my previous company.  There were trade-offs for every aspect.

I no longer had to worry about testing, communicating and performing upgrades.  But, now I'm checking the Atlassian Cloud Blog for the weekly change updates to see if anything Atlassian has released this week will affect my users.

I'm not digging into the server machine itself to look at the logs are investigate performance issues, but I am more regularly in contact with Atlassian Support (since I don't have direct access to some the errors behind the scenes).  I'm also subscribed to Atlassian's public status page for things that will affect our users so I can give advanced warning of known outages or performance issues.

So I would say you won't be doing the same thing as an admin of Cloud as you were for Server, but I would also disagree that you are simply managing configurations.

Thanks for posting the discussion @Monika Rani! I think this is a great topic to be chatting about!

Thank you @Jimmy Seddon for your views and I also do not agree about the simply managing configuration but my colleagues was saying like this and I had a good brain storming with him. I am happy that all other community members also giving the interesting views.

@Monika Rani - I agree with Jimmy! If moving to cloud means Jira admins have less responsibilities, theoretically this means I have more time to ensure Jira has the right schemes to serve my users! 😊 For sure this means I have more time to get another cup of coffee...
