Why can one of my users not 'release a version'

My user is part of the jira-developers group.

I have a permission scheme configured which includes jira-developers in all project permissions except delete comments.

This permission scheme is associated with a project and this user is also the project lead.

When this user goes to their kanban board they cannot click 'release' at the top right to create a release with a version name.

Any ideas?

Is the filter for this kanban board only showing issues from one project?

If it is pulling issues from different projects you will need to have the Project Administrators permission in all the projects. smile


Hi Matheus,

This is the query: 

project = Stuff OR project != Stuff AND assignee in membersOf(Stuff) AND status not in (Closed) ORDER BY Rank ASC

So this pulls issues from ALL project correct?

Also where do I see 'project administrators'? Is it the board administrators that you are talking about?
