Hi Anup, in addition to Sam's correct answer, try using one of JIRA's "helper" tools.

The Permission Helper uncovers why a user can or cannot interact with an issue.  For example, a user isn't in a needed group or project role.

Use this tool to start any permission investigation.


You can check for the "Assignable User" permission this way as well as manually in the permission scheme.

Location: Admin > System > Permission helper

This tool is also in the "Admin" menu of an issue's view screen.

Hi Anup - The first thing to do is to check that your user (or a group/role they are part of) has been granted the 'Assignable user' permission in your project.
