Unable to tag people

Hi, I have a weird issue. I am unable to tag anyone in my jira tickets.

I can create a jira ticket but can't tag anyone. When I type @ symbol, the list of people doesn't popup, whereas all my colleges can see the list of people. The @ symbol is blue in color when I type, then it turns black (like a normal text).

I am added to the project so I guess I have the required access. I read somewhere about "Browse users" permissions, but i think those are global level permissions which is not visible to me, and I think "Browse users" is not a user level permission which can only impact me.

Please help.

Hello Jayesh,

Indeed, I confirm that this problem is probably due to the "Browse users and groups" permission that you don't seem to have access to.

The only solution I see is asking a global admin for help, to grant you the "Browse users and groups" permission from the Settings => System => Global Settings menu.


Let me know if it helped or not,

Hi @Jayesh Amarnani 

Welcome to the Community!

It could well be a permission issue.

My advice would be to reach out to your Admin and ask them if they can troubleshoot it.

They might find the Admin Helper useful:

Hope that helps,

Regards, Liam

Thanks for helping me!!

I will try this and update.


Thanks again!
