Project Lead Cannot Close Sprint

Andy Rosequist Jun 23, 2016

After upgrading to JIRA v7.1.7, the "Manage Sprints" permission as appeared, and "Complete Sprint" has been greyed out for one of our Project Leads. Permission Helper shows that he has the "Manage Sprints" permission and no errors are brought about.

The project lead must have "manage sprint" permission for all the projects of the issues that are on that board. For example, if a board lists issues from two projects, you will need to have manage sprints for two projects.

Also, there is a bug, if an issue is moved from one project to another, you need to have manage sprints permission for the original project.
