What are basic first steps I should do in order to become a Jira Administrator?

Hello, I am new to the software world, as I just started a new position at a software company that specializes in law enforcement/prison software. My boss is willing to pay my way through classes and such to become a Jira Administrator - what should I start off with? What are the best steps I should take to effectively complete this task and receive my certificate?

Thanks in advance, 

Kyleigh Philbrook

Hi Kyleigh,

There are different 'flavors' of Jira administrators, certified and not certified. Atlassian recommends 2 years of Jira Administration before taking the ACP-100 and becoming a certified Jira Administrator. Becoming an un-certified Jira Administrator is as easy as being added to the jira-administrators or jira-system-administrators group.

It is possible to become a certified Jira Administrator in less than two years, but the time spent navigating the application will greatly benefit you and shine light into the nooks/crannies in ways you cannot get from 'speed running' your Jira education. Cheers!
