Unable to create an issue in a business template

I was trying to use the business template to create a recruitment project in JIRA. I assigned myself as both the project manager and the project contributor, in addition to my default role as the site admin. However, when I tried to create an issue in the "Board", it just failed, telling me that I do not have the permission. (Please refer to the screenshots I took in attachment) Could someone tell me what could be the root cause for that?

You can check if you have 'Issue creation permission' using the 'Permissions helper' tool. You can access it through the global shortcuts panel: Press '.' or 'gg', then 'permission'.

Direct URL to the tool: https://<instance_name>

Thank you for reaching out. I cannot create any issue in that new project which has no issues for the time being. Therefore, I cannot pick up a particular issue, which is a mandatory field, when using the permission helper tool to check my access...

Interesting. Do you have any other business projects in the instance or is this the first one you create?

Yes I do. I have another personal to-do-list created weeks ago, using a business template. And that one's fine. I tried a moment ago to reactivate the JIRA core subscription. Now I can see both projects in the JIRA Core cockpit. However, it doesn't change the story...sadly...

Hi @max_yang ,

You need Create Issues Permission to create issues in the project.


Hi Ollie, I tried editing the permission as you have pointed out. Unfortunately it does not work. Actually by default permission scheme, everyone with the access to the application should be able to create and edit an issue. Not sure if its a problem with the business template...

Hi @max_yang ,

Can you create Issue with the shortcut on the left?


Hi Ollie, I tried that just now. It worked at the very beginning, sending me a congrats on having successfully created one issue. However, when I tried to click that issue in the Board, I was told that I had no permission. In while, the issue is gone...disappeared...

Hi @max_yang ,

It looks like your problem is similar to the description below.


Why can't I see issues on the board?

If your project contains customized workflows, you might not be able to see your issues on the board. Here are the two main cases where this can happen.

1: Your project contains issues that have different workflows

For instance, you have customized a workflow for a certain issue type and you have multiple workflows in your project.


BTW: Please feel free to contact me wechart guanqun1982, I will add you to Chinese users wechart group.

Hi Ollie, thanks! I did not customize the workflow of the project. Neither did I apply a different workflow for the issue that I was about to create. 

Nevertheless, I think I've found the cause. By creating a business project, I need to specify the Assignee in the project setting, which is by default "unassigned" . I have no idea if this is a bug. But the logic behind is simply not comprehensive...

Interesting. What was the default value before you changed it to 'Unassigned'?

The default value is "Unassigned". In the drop down list, there are 2 options available, Project Lead or Unassigned. With the option "unassigned" chosen, I'm not able to create an issue. But the problem is not completely solved. I added another user as project manager. She was able to create something she could not see at all, i.e. she could create an issue in this project put up by me, but once she tried to access the issue she just created, she was told that she had no permission and issue went disappeared from her "Board". however, I am able to see all those issues she tried to that's something really weird...

Odd indeed. Can you open a support case for this? Our engineers might be able to shed some light on the issue you are facing:
