Hi @Éloïse Guéritte 

There may be two possible issues here

The dropdowns in Jira show the first n values only. Try typing the name of your project and see if the available list shows.

Or you may not have access to the project you want to transfer into. If you can browse to the project your access should be OK.

My guess is either what Tom said about dropdowns, and about permissions as well - to move an issue into a project though, it's not just browsing, you need "create issue" permission in the target project as well.

I tried typing the name of the project in the dropdown but nothing. 

I have created the Board from where I am transferring the issues so I have full access to it. The bulk move allows me to move the issues to all the Boards I work with, except the one I want.

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ I am Administrator of the Project I am moving the issues from and also Administrator of the Project I a moving the issues to. 

Admins permission is for admin functions, not project rights. They do not grant "can do anything".

Check if you have create issue - click create and saa if you can select the target project.
