I can't change assignee from the GUI, but from dot assignee shortcut. How can I make it work in GUI?

I have a user that has the permission to change assignee on a story, but only when using . assignee shortcut. 

How do I make it work so that the user can change assignee from the GUI, as he/she wishes? 

Nothing to click to change assignee (except "Assign to me") Skärmavbild 2016-09-21 kl. 08.50.21.png


dot assign works though

"Dot assign" and "assign to me" are all part of the GUI, so I'm going to guess that you mean "I can't edit the assignee"

Have a look at the "edit" screen for that project and issue type.  I suspect it does not have the assignee field on it.  You can only change fields in the issue view if they are on the edit screen. 


THANK YOU!  Your answer just resolved the same problem that I've been struggling to figure out for two hours.

Thank you! Case closed smile
