What is a Jira Admin?

A Jira Admin (administrator) is responsible for managing, administering, configuring, and maintaining Jira systems. Other tasks of a Jira Admin include managing user accounts, creating projects, configuring permissions and workflow rules, and integrating Jira with other systems. Therefore, a Jira admin needs a profound understanding of how Jira works and must be able to solve complex technical problems.

In small organizations, it is often sufficient to have only one Jira administrator. Larger organizations typically require multiple Jira admins. A Jira admin is not the same as a project admin or system admin. These are different administration roles, which we compare for you here: A comparison of the different administration levels in Jira.
