Question about user group in Jira

Hi Support,

Could you advise what the different between the group: jira-superuser and jira-administrator? Thanks.

I tried to search but not get a clear picture.

Hi Hooi Peng,

Atlassian Support is actually located at this website :

As for your question, I don't think the group jira-superuser is a default group in JIRA. It should only be jira-user, jira-developer and jira-administrator. Please check if this group was created by some of the admins.



Yea, I interpreted that as the JIRA System Administrator role vs JIRA Administrator...


where you got this group: jira-superuser from. it is not a default group i guess.

afaik default groups are jira-users, jira-developers & jira-administrators

there is a documentation availabe about how to set up jira-system-administrators and configure global permission to access trimmed admin operations


your welcome. please accept helpful answers :)
