The error is normally caused by a post function in the Create Issue transition.

To troubleshoot:

  1. Find the workflow used by the Issue Type in question
  2. locate the "Create" transition
  3. check the Post Functions for problems

Sometimes a post function requires a plugin that is disabled or a postfunction is positioned on top of "Create issue originally" and has problems on runtime, thus the issue can't be created.

If post functions look ok, contact support at support.atlassian.com

Cheers!

Correct but not entirely correct.  

In my case the post function was set correctly - the problem was with the the custom field configuration.  I resolved the issue by identifying why a field was not displaying in a screen.  From there the rest was easy. 

However it would be far better to have a non ambiguous message saying exactly what the problem was.  I sat here for 10 minutes before copying the error message and googling it. 

Hello!

How have you found it out?

Were there any errors in log that indicated this trouble?

I'm facing the same message now, and I have no idea where to look.

Best wishes, Andrey

Hi Guys,

Thanks for pointing at reason for the issue.

I verified that postfcuntions and plugin used were proper.

But the background indexing was not going further due to index file corrupted. Hence I did "Lock JIRA and rebuild index". 

After reindexing it worked again.

How reindexing is related to postfunction using some plugin.

 

Thanks in advance,

Hello everybody!

I've caught similar error and catched error in log file - jirasoftware310517123036-stdout.2017-06-16

That's it:

com.atlassian.jira.exception.CreateException: Can not assign issue to nonexistent user: waiting.

waiting was my fake user, mentioned as default assignee in project setup.

I've change project setup to have no default assignee (UNASSIGNED),

deleted user "waiting" - and got this error.

I've created it again, and everything is working now.

But I still have question - what's wrong with project setup? It's still no default assignee, but all new issues are assigned to "waiting"

Help me pls :)))
