Welcome to Power Admin for Jira

How it works

Power Admin is an advanced administration tool that allows you to search for configuration elements, see dependencies and usage, and edit and configure elements.

Power Admin and CMJ dependency scan differences

You may notice that in some cases, Power Admin and CMJ report a different number of dependencies for a specific configuration element. This is completely normal, and it occurs because the two tools fulfill different use cases.

Learn more about this difference in the Dependency scan differences between Power Admin and Configuration Manager for Jira (CMJ) page.
