I can't change the type of my project issue, either existing or new issue, I can choose, but can't change, can anyone help me.

The message is not clear, I did not do what I have to do to resolve.

Settings -> Issues
-> Screens -> (Screen used by your Project) -> Configure
-> (Select Field to add ...) ->"Issue Type"

Then refresh your page and attempt to edit the issue type again!




Thank you Joseph!

I have the same problem. The notification "you cannot edit this issue.." appears only in one my project. I have issue scheme for create, edit and view issue. Also "move"change issue type, but it's not good enough solution for me. How can I change settings to change easily issue type with this favicon?


update - I resolved the problem. I just needed to add "issue type" to configure screen. ;)

thanks! this one bugged me for some hours and your solution worked :)

1. Does "move" let you change the issue type?

2.Is the issue type field on the edit screen for the issue (admin question)

I didn't understand your comments, could it be a little clearer?

The type of problem was not associated with the screen I had. it was just that.
Sorry, but I think the jira should be clearer in your error messages.

Thanks for your response.

You're probably right. Not that they are my error messages
