Why I can't reassign Issue in some JIRA? Edited

Hi Everyone,

I am in the manager group which should have the ability to reassignee issues to other users. However, in some JIRAs I can't reassign, I can only change the assign in the bulk change, which is not convienent at all.

Anyone knows why?

In our project, we have two issue type screen scheme, one is regular issue type screen scheme, one is support issue type. I am thinking is this problem related to the scheme? For all regular issues, I can change assginee. For all support issues, I can't...

Does this make sense? Please let me know if not clear....

Yes, it suggests that the screens for the issue you can mouse-over includes the assignee field, and the screens for the other issue do not.

Oops! Thank you very much!!
