Error message "You need the manage sprint permission for all projects in the origin board to manage this sprint"

User has been given project admin role across all projects where stories originate. Still no luck in him being able to close a sprint.

Project admin does not necessarily mean manage sprint permission - check the permission scheme and user's membership for that.

permission scheme for Manage Sprints set to "Any logged in user"

For every project that might be included in the board?

I had an issue like this. The user had permissions to all projects involved, which was just two projects with a total of 8 issues.

I found via the Test View > By Sprint feature the Sprint was appearing on two boards. The JQL for both boards checked out fine when looking at the issues in the Issue Navigator. 

However, one of the boards filters caused the Projects In Board to state The projects in this board cannot be listed because of the complexity of the board filter.

Because the second board wasn't needed we deleted it and then the problem with completing the sprint went away.

I am confident we could of fixed the JQL on the second board so Jira could identify the boards contained, and then we could of completed the sprint as well.

Faced this problem today. 

My user used for a board a complex filter which included Scriptrunner JQL functions and Portfolio hierarchies. 

Resolved by adding an additional conditional to the JQL, which limited it to the projects I wanted, where my user had manage sprint rights.

So instead of the complex filter I used: 

(Project = MyProject) AND (My complex filter JQL here)

Worked like a charm and fixed all "Manage Sprint" permissions.


I hoep this helps anybody


happy weekend
