Product Owners cannot start (or end or create) Sprint

Hi, I have the issue that my Product Owners cannot start a Sprint in Scrum Boards.

My settings are set this way:

  • I have a gloabl group called "Product Owners" which includes the PO people
  • I have a Default Permission Scheme which is linked to my projects
  • In that Default Permisison Scheme I have set the permission for "Manage Sprints" (which afaik includes the "End Sprint" and "Start Sprint" and "Create Sprint" permission) and on that I have added the group "Product Owners"

Still my POs cannot end or start sprint, only I as Admin can do that. Could anyone help me to review the settings and get this sorted out please?

Can you look if there's multiple project in the scrum board. May be they don't have the good permission in thoses projects.

I have two projects in the board and both use the same permission scheme
