What permission do I need to edit intakes?

Hi community,

I gave the System role of Epic Owner to one of my user in JIRA Align. He can see Epics and see the Intake tab. 

But he cannot edit the values in that Intake tab. I cannot figure out why. In the permissions for that role under Portfolio > Epics > Intake is ON.

Is there another permission to edit Intake? Where? Thank you!!

Hi community,

I also asked the question to Support team and I got the answer. To be able to edit Intakes, you need "Add" permisison at the Epic level on your system role, not only "Intake" permisison.

"Add" includes for now adding Epics and editing it. There is an idea in the backlog to split the permissions.

Hi @Romain VELON , is the user assigned as a member of the Program Team of the Primary Program selected for the Epic? The Intake Form that displays on the Intake tab is based on the Primary Program that is selected.  Below is screenshot of a Program and how the Intake Form is assigned to it.

Hi @Sam Tsubota ,

Thank you for your quick answer. My user has access to the primary program of the Epic. I give you new screenshots.
