User under Extended Project Administration cannot edit permissions?

I am listed in the Extended Project Administrator group and the schema has been assigned correctly to the project.  However, I do not have the admin permissions drop down in the top right of the "permissions" screen to be able to add users to my project with browse access, etc.

I've tried using multiple browsers, but they are all the same.  Is there something the Jira administrators are missing that would give me the drop down and correct permissions?

Hey Adam,

If Permissions is shared across multiple projects having the "Extend Project Admin" permissions may not allow you to edit the Permissions.

Hope this helps,


Thanks Tyler, but I'm not sure I understand what you mean by if permissions are shared across multiple projects...

Hey Adam,

It's possible that the Permission scheme used by your project is also used by another project.

If that is happening then it's possible that even a Project Admin with Extended permissions wouldn't be able to edit the Permissions since it's shared.
