assignment of issues

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Getting Help and Support

I can only assign uses to myself. Issues cannot be assigned to project member.

As you say "issues", I assume you mean JIRA, rather than Confluence.

If so, take a look at the permission scheme for the project.  What does the line "assignable user" say?

I am using the German version and I may haven't translated the term "Aufgabe" correctly. I am talking about confluence. A better translation may be: activity (this can be created when edtiting a page runing the corresponding macro.)


hope this helps?


PS: JIRA is working fine.


Ah, ok, thanks for the explanation.  I'd call them "tasks" as that's what we get when we're using the English language setup.  Atlassian tend to use different words in their systems even when they're often similar concepts (Confluence has spaces, JIRA has projects - they're both ways to logically group up objects so they have the same configuration and purposes).  It's often helpful, but also breaks translations annoyingly.

Could you explain how you're trying to assign the tasks?

Hi Nic,


 I just saw that my answer from last week didn't been stored. However, when I am editing a page which runs "task macro" I am creating tasks as described.  works fine,but when using @ @Bernd Broksch my name is selectable only.


Hope this helps



That sounds like you don't have the ability to see other users.

Hi Bernd,

Using "@BerndBroksch" assigns the task to you. To assign it to another person, use "@personname".

Hope this helps!
