We were doing our sprint planning yesterday and we were unable to assign tasks to a user. This developer has been in our system for 6+ months and we have been assigning work to them regularly.
They are in the system under the admin console. In Jira when I search people, they do not appear. This person can get into jira and can even assign themselves to the task. NOTHING has changed on our end. This is cloud hosted.
Hi @Chris Welch
Have you thoroughly checked what changed recently? did the Sprint Board filter change to a newer filter, adding more Projects or subtracting more projects? As Sprint are not particularly tied to a specific Project or Board, so in order to understand why you're unable to assign issues to the user. You need to trace what particular issue and on what project is this issue from. Only then can you check the permissions to see what's affecting the user.
Then it is very likely that the user has changed their profile visibility. which masks their user identity on Jira. This would be a problem to search for the user, thus you can't assign task or even @ mention the user. Ask the user what's their current settings on this link for contact email? If it's set to "Only you and Admin" that could be the cause.
@Chris Welch : have you resolved this yet? It's happening to me too. Suddenly, out of nowhere, my name doesn't appear in Search when someone else is trying to assign me an issue or put my name in a field. Several other co-workers have verified that they can't find my name.
@Prince Nyeche : perhaps this is a bug that should be escalated to the JIRA product team.
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
