Can't add the "atlassian-addons-project-access" role with trial account

I'm trying to demo an addon integration (SVN Gateway), but my trial Atlassian account will not allow me to edit the permissions. My Admin account does not seem to have the "atlassian-addons-project-access" role (containing the "View Development Tools" permission), which is required to view the Development field showing the commit history.  Does the Jira Software product have different permissions set up for trial accounts?

Hi Ben - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I see the atlassian-addons-project-access role in your permission scheme. But in your permission helper it seems to be running as you and not the add-on. Are you in the Administrator role on the project (in People)?

Hi John,

Thank you for your reply.  When I navigate to the People page in the project settings I only see this message:

Where is everybody?

On a free plan, you can only add people using your site's administration settings. Upgrade your plan to better control who can access this project.

So I'm not sure what is the answer to your question.  

At the recommended Administration settings page I added my user (the only one) to all the groups available.  And then for each of those groups, I ensured that the Jira Work Management product was added (the only other product available for me to select is Jira Administration).  Still no change and I am unable to view the Development field.

Any ideas?

Ah, that's right - no permission adjustments. So what exactly is the error you are getting? 

No error exactly, only that I'm unable to view commit history in an Issue's Development field, via the SVN Gateway addon, which is what I'm trying to demo.  The addon config does "see" my latest revision from my sample repo, it's just not displaying due to the above persimmons issue.

Gotcha. That's probably not going to be something that is overcome without upgrading to a paid account.  :-(

Thanks anyway for your help John.
