What specific permissions are needed to move an issue to another project?

We have dedicated teams for each project. Sometimes issues are added to the wrong project and I'm trying to set up permissions so someone can move an item into their project. I haven't been able to get this set up right - either the person doesn't have access to move from the source project or to the target project.

What are the specific permissions need to allow someone to move an issue into their project?

A combination. Check the "Move Permission" of both the projects and the "Create Permission".



From just a permissions point of view you must have 'move' permissions.  However, keep in mind you also have to have a issue/field mapping between the originating project as well as the receiving project, which JIRA will graciously ask you after you start the move.







My bad, Gabrielle is correct in that you also need create permissions.

Hey Bryan,
When the issue is moved to a new project, this project will "see" the issue as a new issue, which is the reason that you should have the Create Issue permissions.


I think I already said this commenting on Gabrielle's post.
