Edit permissions not working properly


I limited the Edit issues permission to Admin, Add-on access, and Reporter. However, it's not working properly. Here is my example: User A whom is also the reporter of Issue 1

                                 User B (not the reporter of issue 1) is able to edit issue 1

The Project roles show only groups of Developer and Analyst which User B is not a part of. What am I missing here?

Thanks for your help.

I think you'll find B is definitely in jira-adminstrators, named in that addons-role, or in one of the groups in that role.

I found the problem.

B was added to a group part of a condition: Only users in group XXXX can execute this transition.

Ah, conditions are not related to "edit", so that makes more sense.  Sorry, my familiarity makes me forget that people might think a transition is an "edit" (it's not, in JIRA-speak)
