We have Portfolio for JIRA and have limited the access to Portfolio to users who work in a team-of-teams.
But we do want normal users to be able to set the Parent Link from within the Create / View / Edit Issue screens.
But users now get the error "You are not authorised to perform this operation". And it seems that the Portfolio Administration only contains roles that allow users to do things with the Portfolio Plans.
So: is there a way to allow users to set the Parent Link (and Team) in an Issue without also giving them permissions to work with Plans?
We're running into the same issue, but we have a possible solution depending on your org. When you add editors to a plan on Portfolio v2.0 or later, the plan becomes read only to everyone else. So, add anyone who might need to edit Portfolio parent-links as Portfolio for JIRA Users, then add specific editors to the plan who can interact with and manipulate data on the Portfolio for JIRA side of the house.
The problem with this solution is that any Portfolio for JIRA user can then create Portfolio Plans.
Hope this helps,
