I searched and checked this out :
which defines what is site-admin, but many points remains unclear :
- is site-admin = JIRA System Administrators ?
- what can do an Admin and a JIRA-Admin ?
- what is the reason to be of each, and what are the differences ?
- The client has Confluence and JIRA site : JIRA-admin here does mean as well Confluence-admin ?
Site-admins are able to maintain the Cloud site - mostly users, which are shared across the applications that make up the sie.
Jira administrators look after Jira - fields, screens, workflows, projects, permissions and so-on. Confluence administrators look after Confluence at a similar level.
You can change the permissions in each application if you want, granting extra admin rights - one of our clients created an "atlas admin" group and granted it Jira, Bitbucket and Confluence admin inside the applications, so they had a really simple way to say "these people are admins for the whole stack".
You don't get System administration on Cloud, only Atlassian support have that access.
I'm a JIRA beginner. If we would like create a new project of Jira Software, I issued site admin permission to member until now. However should we need only "administrators" permission?
Also, only users in the site-admin group can add Paid Add-ons or Applications to your cloud instance that runs Jira or other Atlassian products.
