JIRA issue - missing edit button


I have configured JIRA workflow. In a particular step the assignee of the step is not able to see the edit button.

In the permissions I have assignee having issue edit permission. Rest all steps in workflow are fine..

Any idea why this might be the case?

Please let me know.

There is a property I added on workflow step which prevented edit. I deleted it and it started working fine.

I have the same issue , do you remember which property you added?

It should be sth. like jira.issue.editable or jira.permission.edit.group


I had the same issue. I went to the active workflow, selected the respective status and verified the properties. I had to remove the property jira.permission.edit.group, which was set to a JIRA admin group.
