Hi @Jackson Stubblefield 

Is it applicable for all browser? Is it possible to disable user installed add-ons and try it again?

You can also create a ticket to Atlassian Support if problem continues. 


Able to reproduce in both Incognito Chrome and MS Edge.  Going to be creating a support ticket. 

I'm having the same problem @Jackson Stubblefield . Did you get this resolved? I'm going to enter a support ticket as well.

Hey @LaurieC we were able to solve this internally. The issue ended up being a permission issue which was resolved by reaching out to my domain’s Jira admins. Hope this helps. 

Thanks @Jackson Stubblefield

I appreciate your quick response! I am our Jira Admin, so put in a ticket. 

have a great day!
