Scriptrunner: cannot enable Script Edit Permissions

I tried to enable Script Edit Permissions in ScriptRunner, but ScriptRunner cannot find any group with the Jira Administration permission.

This is not true because there is the default jira-administrators group with all the global permissions.

I'm using Jira Service Desk 4.5.3 with Jira Core 8.5.3 and scriptrunner 6.4.0-p5.

Hi Luca,

As explained in our documentation, when enabled, Script Edit Permissions gives editing permission to Jira system administrators only. System administrators can then optionally extend script editing permissions to Jira administrator groups.

You will need to make sure they have system admin rights. 

Kind regards,
