Unable to edit context name in JIRA planning Board.

Tarun Sapra Community Champion Feb 05, 2013

Hello All,

I am a jira admin. but still I am not able to modify the name of the conext in the planning board, the msg. says only the owner can modify the context.

How do i fix this issue?

I think the issue is this - if you read the link carefully in the docs

"'Context name' — Edit the name of your context."

It uses the word "Your" context i think i can't edit anyone's context. is it the case?

Thanks,

Tarun

context can only be edited by the owner (i really don't understand why wasn't jira admin also allowed to edit context name :X)

Hey there, Tarun.

According to the documentation below, it is mentioned that you need to have the Administer Project permission. Can you check if you have the respective permission?:

Which version of GreenHopper plugin are you running on? Can you post the screenshot that you are getting?

Warm regards,

Hey there again, Tarun.

Perhaps you can check if the project role Administrator has the rightful permission of the Administer Project like I mentioned earlier on?

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Project+Permissions

On the other hand, you can try and manually add yourself into the JIRA Administrator Global Permission and check if you are still not able to edit the context of the Planning Board.

Hi Danial,

I am already part of the group which is jira system administrators.

I am usin' 5.8.7 and i am part of jira-administrator group, this group is mapped against the project role "Administrator" in the people section of the project.

In the permission scheme of the project the administer project is mapped to jira-administrator and i am also part of that group.

Hi Danial,

I think the issue is this - if you read the link carefully that you have shared, it's written -

"'Context name' — Edit the name of your context."

It uses the word "Your" context i think i can't edit anyone's context. is it the case?

Hey there, Tarun.

Good catch on that. I somehow believe that it might be that only the owners are able to modify the configuration in the board. That could be the explanation to why you are do not the permission to perform this.

Anyway, as you might have known, the Classic Boards is going to be deprecated by end of this year. Any plans on moving into the new Rapid Boards?

Warm regards,

Danial
