HELP!!! Why see just me in dropdown list in assignee field when I create an issue?

Why see just me in assignee field when I create an issue?

- 5 users are defined in roles for project

- Browse users is set for Anyone

- Assign permissions are set for Anyone

- Use standard workflow 'jira'

What is the problem?

Assign permissions = can assign issue to someone

Assignee permissions = can be assigned an issue (by anyone with the permission above)

Two separate things in the permission schemes - check those first and get back to us if your roles are in the second one!

I have following permissions:

Assign Issues
Ability to assign issues to other people.
  • Group (Anyone)
Assignable User
Users with this permission may be assigned to issues.
  • Group (Anyone)

Hmm. Then that should work. I have a slight doubt about the "anyone" working though - I think because it's a concept rather than a physical list of people, it might not actually be being parsed.

Could you try adding the group jira-users, or a role that other people are in, as well as "anyone"

Have tried to change to Group/Role/Single User - result is the same!

Bother. I'm not sure then.

... actually, one other idea. Could you visit Administration -> Global permissions? (On later versions, that'll be Admin -> Users -> Global permissions).

Look for who has "browse users" permission. Make sure you have it and retry the assign.
