Set security on an issue jira software 7.2?

Hi, I found the documentation on how to set up a security scheme in JIRA Software ( but this only tells me how to set up the scheme, not how to control the security for an individual issue.  I found a description of that for 6.4 ( but there's no security drop-down when I edit an issue in 7.2.  I'm quite sure I have permissions to set issue security, and I'm a member of the group I want to set the security to.

Was this feature removed?  Is it a bug?  Have I just not had enough coffee yet and I'm completely missing it?  

As always, help is appreciated!

The issue security functions have worked the same way from JIRA 3 to the very latest.

As you've checked that you have the permissions, and you're a member of one of the levels, my best guess is that the "security level" field is not on the create/edit screen.


Thank you, I was looking for a built-in drop-down, not a field!  Not enough coffee, obviously.  smile

Not your fault Maya, I understoon the same way, I think documentation is not clear. After all explanation how to setup security there is no direct link on how to use it :/ Just saying :)
