I want to allow members of a specific project role ("Product Owners") to re-order issues in the backlog in JIRA Agile.
I have added the "Schedule Issues" permission to the "Product Owners" role in my permission scheme. I've checked that the user I'm testing with does have the "Schedule Issues" permission on the projects associated with the board; however, when trying to re-order the backlog this user gets the message "You do not have permission to edit this issue."
My boards are all Scrum boards, and I am using JIRA 6.0.8 with JIRA Agile 18.104.22.168.
According to the following document https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AGILE/What+are+the+permissions+used+in+Agile+Boardsthe user should just have the 'schedule permission', I can resolve it by giving them the edit permission as well but then this allows them to add issues to sprints - which is less than ideal.
I've missed something with the configuration of the board or permissions perhaps - any help appreciated.
Fair enough, I thought it was the case but no harm is asking ... the doco didn't really seem to clear it up for me.
Those that rank should not by default also be those that add/remove from a sprint - can cause no end of pain and general havoc. Ideally there should be a separate permission (rank) but as that is core I doubt it will change.
Off to find a tool that works for me.
Thanks for helping me out Timothy.
