How to set permission for changing Status?

2016-07-01 15;19;46.PNGThis question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Permissions overview




I managed Permissions by project roles on each category.

But somehow Status(workflow) button is dissapeared and I don't know how to make it shows again and manage permissions to who can active this button.

Please help me figure out.

There's two things to look at on there:

  1.  Look at the workflow for the missing transitions - check the conditions on them are not stopping your users
  2. Check the permission scheme for the "transition" permissions

Thank you! I figured out on transition permissions.

What to do if it says granted and you still cannot change 

There can be two layers to it.  You need to read the conditions on the transitions first, to see what they say.  Many of them will say "role: x can do this" or "people with permission y", so you need to read those rules to see if the project permission scheme really is what is driving it.

Just because a transition says "resolve issue" does not mean it has a condition of "only people with resolve issue permission can do this", it could have others, and may have had the "resolve issue permission" removed as well.
