Unable to Create a Automation Rule due to Rule Actor permission to board


I am receiving the error "Unable to access the selected board. Please ensure that the rule actor has permission  to access that board"

I am not sure where I have to go to add access to the rule actor. I already edited my permission schema to include the "atlassian-addons-project-access" to every permission.  Is there somewhere else I need to check?


Attempting to add a rule that will set the assigned user to Unassigned when a sprint is created.

Hi @Mark ,

please check the rule details, who the rule actor is. Is it Automation for Jira or your user or someone else?

Then please navigate to your board's configuration and there's Filter section with information, with whom is the filter shared. Does this configuration correspond with your rule actor? For example if the filter is shared with some project, does your rule actor (or atlassian-addons-project-access, if rule actor is Automation for Jira) has Browse projects permission in this project?

Thank you for sharing more detail.

Thank you Hana, I added the related project to have access to the filter associated with the board and then I was able to save my automation. Oddly enough I couldn't directly add the automation for JIRA user directly.
