How are you trying to select the user?  What does that do when you select one?

I go to adminsiter project and tried to change the project lead there and it gives me an error. check screenshotScreenshot at Aug 14 13-57-01.png 

Ok, can you test that they're assignable?

Go to an issue in the project and click assign - is Eric a viable option there?

The issue was the user name had a upper case. Atlassian support just respnded back. So the solution is to go change the user name to lower case and that resolved the issue.


Thanks for the help though @Nic Brough [Adaptavist]

Ah, finding Eric in the assignee list would have got us to "case sensitive" after another step.  Glad you got there faster though!
