Assignee does NOT have assignable permission or they are turned off (when they aren't)

I keep getting the following error when I try and create a ticket:-

Assignee: The default assignee does NOT have ASSIGNABLE permission OR Unassigned issues are turned off.

We've just got the trial for the Jira and I have turned on 'allow unassigned issues' from the General Configurations settings, but still get this error.

Please advise,

Obviously, if you turned on the 'allow unassigned issues', the default asignee (configured per project or per component) should be allowed to be assigned to issues.

Check this:

Thank you very much! I didn't realise it was project specific. :)

Looks like today's update caused an issue with the default assignee accounts. You need to reassign the default assignee manually....
