Change project lead in Next-Gen project


How to change the project lead in next-gen projects?


NG Projects only handle this roles: 

  • Administrator. Admins can do most things, like update settings and add other admins to the project. They can manage features, customize issue types, and add rules on the board.
  • Member. Members are a part of the team. They can create issues, edit them, comment on them, move them into different statuses, and generally collaborate on your project's work.
  • Viewer. Viewers can search through and view issues in your project.

So what does that mean?

How do I change the Project Lead to the appropriate task-holder? So when browsing the company's Project, it doesn't show me as Project Lead. Is there a way to do that as an administrator? Or should I just delete the project, increase the rights of the person, and ask the task-holder to create their own NG Project?

Seems like a lot of inconvenient steps to do something that use to be so easy to do.
