Created work management project but cannot access project




I recently created a Jira Work Management project to test/pilot with my team. However, after successfully creating the project, I was not able to access it.

When attempting to access it, I got the error as shown below (even though the project is showing up in my project list). Any guidance?

Hi James - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

By design, permissions to projects are controlled by the Permission Scheme attached to the project. So you will need to check the permissions to Browse Project in that project scheme. 

It worked! Thank you

Since I was bit in the ass by this again....


Project Setting --> Permissions --> Actions --> Use Different Scheme --> <A known good project scheme>

By the looks of mustn't have permissions to view it...which seems odd if you could create it.

Ask a Jira Admin to:

  • See if they can see it
  • check its permissions....then your permissions

Best I can do without being able to see what permissions are in place.
