Why doesn't a user list dropdown show up when selecting roles in project admin? I have to type *exactly* the user name before it accepts that user entry in the text box. It would be much better if I could just select one off of a dropdown list instead.

When I am setting up a project for the first time and adding user roles I spend alot of time going back and forth between a user list screen I have open in another tab and the project user role setup screen so that I type in exactly the correct username.

 

It would be much better if you just have a dropdown textbox list all of the available users to add to the project roles when filling in this information.

 

I have seen a dropdown textbox in other screens when you are required to select a user.. So why doesn't it exist in the project role assignment page?

Hi Donald,

Do you have Browse users permission(Managing Global Permissions)?

Thanks and regards,
Paula Silveira 

I have no idea.. I am logged in as a user that has been included in the groups "administrators", "site-admins", "jira-users", "confluences-users", and "service desk agents". So I would assume I should have this..  What should be enabled as an administrator to enable this capability?

OK.. So I added "Browse" user permission to "administrators"..

 

What the heck!   Shouldn't this be added by default????  Seems like an oversight in the way permissions are set up for "administrators" out of the box.

To followup.. Yes.. This fixed the issue I was having. cheeky
