Project administrator not able to change project lead. Edited

Tayyab Bashir Community Champion Jul 03, 2017

JIRA Server : 7.2.6

As a project administrator one should be able to edit and change the project lead. 
However, in our instance there is a bug with this behavior. 

Instead of changing the project lead, the following error message is shown: 
"You must have global administrator rights in order to modify the project key".

This bug was also tracked here
and was resolved as fixed, but clearly it hasn't been resolved.

Hi Muhammad,

it is fixed in Version 7.2.7 as you can see in the ticket. You are on 7.2.6
