Can not choose Issue type when adding post function CREATE ISSUE


When I want to add the post function 'create issue' in my workflow with JIRA misc workflow i don't get the opportunity to choose the issue type. it's just a black line but no drop down.

Can anybody say why this is like that. The postfunction does not work without issue type.

Many thanks,

Hi Marina,

this means JMWE is not properly installed and needs to be uninstalled and then reinstalled.


Thanks for your answere. Instead of reinstalling I added the add-on user to admin rights and it works perfect. 

Hi Marina,

actually, this might work for the Create issue post-function but you might still run into issues with some other post-functions, because the add-on user should also be in the (hidden) "atlassian-addons-admin" system group, and this can only be fixed either by reinstalling the add-on or asking Atlassian Support to fix it.
