Permission to allow entry of acceptance criteria

Rebecca Hylek June 9, 2023

We have a role in our instance of Jira Align for an RTE.  The permisisons for this role include the ability to manage Features (Add, Save, Acceptance Criteria, Split, Drop, Work Item Mind Map, Design Tab, Value Tab, and Spend Tab are all active).

The RTE is the Project Admin in Jira Software and is a member of the Program Team in Align with the role RTE.

There are times when our RTE's are asked to assist the business team and update Acceptance Criteria on Features before work has started.  For example, we have a feature that is in the planning phase (Funnel) for an upcoming PI and it has not been assigned to a sprint.  The option to add acceptance criteria is not available for the RTE.  

Is there a setting that will allow them to do so?

I just did a quick test and one of the way I see to remove the ability to add Acceptance criteria to a Feature is if the user's program role is set to anything else but "Team of Team". 

At the Program level, the only options are:  Stakeholder, Release Train Engineer, Team of Team or Select One.

Please change membership to "Team of Team" for the user at the Program you are looking to give them Acceptance Critera creation permission.
