I have setted the Assign Issues permission to a role, but it doesen't work.

This role does not have Edit Issues permission... is it necessary?

Hi @Ramiro_Justet

It shouldn't be necessary. 

To confirm upfront:

  • Browse Projects: The user will need to be able to see the project / issues to assign users to them
  • Assignable User: The users being assigned will need this permission to allow them to be assigned to an issue in the project

Then, once you've provided the user(s) with Assign Issues permission:

  • Go to an Issue in that project
  • Look to the navigation buttons - next to Comment should be a button "Assign"
  • Press button, assign users

I tested this on Cloud without edit permissions and it worked fine. You can't inline edit the assignee as this does class as "editing" the issue - but the assign button is the workaround to that.


Thanks for you replay.

I have setted the same (I think), but does not work ...

My settings are in the next link

Hi @Ramiro_Justet

Based on Omar's account which you've logged into - it appears he can both

  • Assign himself (the Assign to Me button under the Assignee field) and...
  • Assign to others (The Assign button to the left, near Comment and the workflow buttons).

He won't be able to inline edit as this is editing even for Assignee.


Ahhh, ok.

It´s working.

Thank you very much.
