I have a user who is trying to link multiple issues in a particular project. They're getting a "you do not have permission to link issues in this project" error, despite the fact that jira-users has that permission granted for the project. Any ideas why?
I'm not sure what else would be helpful to know, but please ask and I'll provide any info I have.
It turns out that the issue was related to a bug in my version of JIRA:
I managed to reproduce the problem and find the cause for it.
It seems we have a bug on JIRA that does not allow users without Edit permission to link issues at the issue creation
The issue is set to be fixed on JIRA 6.
i'm not sure what you mean. here's a list of the groups this user is a member of (obviously most of them won't mean anything to you):
yes, she's in the jira-users group, that's the group that gives login access. And yes, she's not in the Training group, and therefore doesn't have edit permissions in the Training project, but she does have Browse permissions in that project, as well as create permissions. The error is occuring whether she tries to link to an issue in the Training project, or to an issue in a different project (where she has full rights).
I have *one* user with the same problem, although a slightly different symptom. They get the Link dialog, auto-completion of issue key works, but as soon as they want to "save" the link, they get a "you must specify a JIRA issue to link to" error message. (and the issue key is gone from the field)
Their permissions are correct, issue linking is enabled and works for all other users afaik. Nothing shows up in the logs. Happens for any and all projects/issues for that user, while the same works for other users with the groups and roles. Tried with different browsers and machines, no dice.
