Cannot edit Jira Issues Edited

I recently created a jira issue and all the usual fields were editable (description, attachment to upload) after the issue was created. Somehow, after awhile I cannot edit the issues anymore. 

I used the same permission scheme as another jira project where all the open issues are still editable. 

I'm also logged in as Jira global site administrator

How do I re-enable editing for open issues?

Solved it. That "Permission Helper" button was helpful. I figured that although I'm a Jira site administrator, I still can't edit any issue in any project. You still need to add yourself with the correct role to the particular project. 

How did you do it? 

I can't see any Permission helper button anywhere. 

Are you an admin?  (Jira admin, not site or project admins)

I'm also logged in as Jira Global site administrator

sorry, if i knew how to delete my above comment above, i would.

Check the permission scheme for the project.  What does it say for "Issue Edit"?

  • Project Role (Users)
  • Project Role (atlassian-addons-project-access)


I've actually copied the same permission scheme from another project which has jira issue editing for all issues.
