Eclipse JIRA Plugin Question

Our team is using the JIRA plugin for Eclipse (v3.0.5).

They have access to the projects and can list the issues, modify some parameters (like description, comment, etc.) but they can’t change the resolver/assignee, etc.

can we change the resolver/assignee with eclipse?

Hi Atlassians, Any update please?

Any help please..

Check your permission scheme for those projects and see if they are part of the Assignable users and "Resolve" access.


What do you mean by "they can’t change the resolver/assignee". Do they get any error when trying to change assignee and submitting issue? Or maybe the assignee field is not editable?



Hi Jacek,

They have an error when they try to change assignee to themselves.

Their use case is an issue that is assigned to a colleague and they are going to work on it so they want to assign it to themselves.

Please let me know if you need any further information.


Thank you for explanation. It definitely looks like a permission issue.

The first action permormed after clicking Start Work button is changing assignee to the current user (if not already assigned) and it fails in your case.

Can you check if for the particular JIRA issue assigned to someone else do you have 'Assigne to me' button in issue view in the JIRA? Most probably the button is not there and you should modify your permission scheme. There is 'Assign Issue' permission in the 'Issue permissions' category.

I have managed to reproduce exactly the same problem if permission scheme is wrong.

Please let me know if that helps.
