Board configurations


Setup is more or less that only I and few guys belong to jira-adminstrator group. All others requiring elevated privileges within projects have project admin roles.

It seems however that you need to belong to jira-adminstrator group in order to configure kanban boards ...  It additionally seems that project admin role is not enough for starting and stopping sprints.

Managing sprint permission scheme has been granted to developers so need help to enable project administrators possibility to start and stop sprints and manage kanban boards without letting them to jira-administrator group.

Got this solved, a problem was that board configuration did have multiple projects. The fix was to add project admin roles for all impacted projects.

I think you should check the Admin Helper option:

Administration > Setting >  Permission Helper

select username , issue, and Manage Sprint permission,

try to resolve failed conditions.

Based on this person has rights to manage sprint, but in practice doesn't really have it.

you can edit the administrators for a board in the board config general screen

... yes knowing how to access configuration and do it. Not getting why project admin cannot define kanban board configuration.
