All administrative functions of Jira Software require you to be a user with the Jira Administrators or Jira System Administrators global permission.
As Jira Software is based on the Jira platform, many of the functions are documented in the Jira Admin documentation.
Installing Jira Software and upgrading Jira Software
Backing up Jira
We recommend that you back up your Jira instance regularly. You should also back up before undertaking any activities that could result in unexpected data loss/changes, such as upgrading Jira to a new version or splitting your instance across multiple servers.

We thoroughly test and provide support for our supported platforms (browsers, databases, Java platforms, etc). We strongly recommend that you use the supported platforms for your version of Jira.

Jira Software has different types of permissions that cover a range of functionalities. This gives you the flexibility to restrict parts of the application to certain users or groups of users. For example, you could allow one user to assign issues in a project, but prevent another user from doing the same.
