I can't change the assignee on one of my Projects.

It used to work so I must have changed something.

Found the issue!  I added the Assignee back to the Create Screen and now the Assignee is editable.  I did not want the Assignee modifiable on Create as ALL issue must be vetted by only one person.  Oh well.

Thanks for your help.


Being able to assign issues comes from two permissions. You should have the assign issues permissions and the other user should have the Assignable user permission in the respective project. Can you check that and let me know.


Both Permissions are identical to another project that I can change the Assignee.
