Create Issue Permission & Move Issue Permission ?

 Definition of Move Issue Permission

Move Issues

Ability to move issues between projects or between workflows of the same project (if applicable). Note the user can only move issues to a project he or she has the create permission for.


A section of the above definitions says, " ...between workflows of the same project " . Is this about issue transition in a workflow or am I understanding it wrong ? Because we have Transition Issues Permission which I believe controls workflow transition.

@Vickey Palzor Lepchayou  can move issues between projects and you  need to  have the move/create permission in permission  scheme.

see documentation:

@Moses Thomas I understand that " Move Issue " permission allows us to move issues between projects.

But I am confused about the second part of the definition - between workflows of the same project. 

You need "move" permission to change the issue type inside a project when the source and target issue types have different configurations.  Think of it as being the same as a "move but without selecting a new project"

Also I believe a user should have Move Issue permission in source project as well as destination project for " Move Issue between Projects"  to work - I guess, that's what my common sense says :p

@Vickey Palzor LepchaYou  don't need to  have move permission in the destination  project, source project  is enough.

Second part,

ie.Once you are  performing the  move  operation and change Issue type for  destination project,  jira will  give you  option  to  chose new statuses base on the work flow of the new issue type which  you have just  chosen is  using. Also  if you don't change issue type during move  it will  use the work-flow this issue type is using  in destination project / same project(if you want to move within)

Note  Moving issue to another project, will cause  issue in this project to use workflow with  transition in  destination project defined for the destination  issue type. In case of same project  you can only  change issue type and  issues will use transition define in the  workflow for the  destination issue  type in this project.


Can somebody help me understand this please ?
