Can you help me please?

Hi @Rosana Casilli 

Can you confirm that this user has permission to create issues in Project B? (A user can only move issues to a project they have the create permission for.)

He is a customer for the project B. 

In project B permission to Move issues "Service Desk Customer -portal access" is set

The Move Issue permission is not sufficient, the user should have "Create Issue" permission in the "Project B". This is because technically there are two operations: create issue in Project B with the issue data from the Project A and (re)move issue from the Project A.

You can find more details about each project permission here, and "Move Issue" says

Permission to move issues from one project to another, or from one workflow to another workflow within the same project. Note that a user can only move issues to a project for which they have Create Issue permission.

Thank you!.. I see that the service desk customer have edit, create, delete move permission. 

But still the user can't move anything.

In fact.. I tried to access as this user and he can't see the any jira service desk project but his. Only Jira Software projects
