Error message when Creating issues: Some issue types are unavailable due to incompatible field configuration and/or workflow associations.
I believe I've read everything in "Answers" and in existing JIRA tickets regarding this caution message, but have yet to find the culprit in my system.
There are two things going on in our JIRA instance that I believe are related but could be two separate & distinct problems.
1) Regardless of which project is chosen when you go to create a new issue, you get this warning message. It doesn't appear to prevent us from creating specific issue types except for project "X". See #2.
2) In new project "X", we have 11 issue types. 6 of which use a PM style workflow and screen scheme, 5 of which use a developer style workflow and screen scheme. No special issue field configuration schemes have been applied, all issue types are using the same default field configurations that most of our other projects use. Here's the weird thing: users in the Developer role can only create 2 of the 5 developer-style issue types and none of the 6 PM style issue types. Users in the "PMO" role can create all EXCEPT those 2 issue types. There used to be an issue security scheme applied that set a different security scheme for those 2 issue types and applied it as a post function in a unique workflow upon issue creation. I've since removed that unique workflow and the security scheme but the situation remains the same. Supposedly it's not possible to restrict within a project which types of issues a user can create. Yet I've managed to do it and I don't know how.
In the Developers role - only the group "X-Contractors" is included.
In the PMO role - both "X-Contractors" and "X-PMO" are included.
In the Users role - both "X-Contractors" and "X-PMO" are included.
Most of the permissions are granted to the Users role. Developers have Move and Schedule permissions, which PMO and Users do not.
Another weird thing I've noticed ... when I get the create issue pop-up, the screens aren't consistent. the following URL ( https://oururl/browse/ANOTHER/?selectedTab=com.atlassian.jira.jira-projects-plugin:issues-panel ) does NOT present the same create screen that is defined for the Create Issue event and shows up in the pop window with this URL (https://oururl/secure/BrowseProjects.jspa#all).
Obviously I have no idea what's relevant and what isn't.
Any and all suggestions appreciated.
I solved this by doing a database level reindex. Not a JIRA-level reindex. We use postgresql so the command was:
So, no hack had been applied. The indexes somehow got out of whack and re-index via JIRA didn't fix it. Neither did a restart of JIRA. I tried all of those before solving it this way.

You have a none-standard hack in your JIRA that does this. JIRA doesn't have this level of permission - you can either create an issue in a project or you can not.
To get to the bottom of what is going on, you'll need to work how this hack has been implemented first, as there's a good chance it is causing or influencing the rest of the behaviour you're seeing.
Here is some additional reading from our knowledge base regarding this error message: https://confluence.atlassian.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=278692623
It may give some insight into possible causes.
This is not an answer. It's an update.
1) Problem persists.
2) I completely deleted the issue security scheme that I had created and then stopped using altogether. Now X-Contractor group members can create all 11 issue types, and X-PMO group members can create the same 9 issue types. All permissions are applied via Roles in the permission scheme. And all "Users" can create issues. All roles that contain X-Contractor also contain X-PMO, and vice versa. There is not a single role that contains only one or the other.
