I downloaded Jenkins.war and I put it in tomcat/webapps directory. I launch

I created the first job by configuring jenkins and the job too. it worked like a charm and I went to "manage jenkins" for putting all permissions for everyone but I lost all permissions and to access to manage jenkins too.

What am I supposed to do now?

The simplest solution is reset security.

Tomcat by default stores the user database in an XML file called $TOMCAT_HOME/conf/tomcat-users.xml. You can add the following lines to this file to create an admin user.
<role rolename="admin"/>
<user username="jenkins-admin" password="secret" roles="admin"/>
