Hi Sachin,

I assume you are using an external authentication for Bamboo User Management.

The default group in Bamboo that has admin permission is bamboo-admin.

  • Check if the user belongs to the local bamboo-admin group.
  • The username does not match any of the users coming from LDAP.

If not, check your bamboo logs to look for hints.
