cannot assign an issue

just started off with jira & agile. created a user, which has already logged in.

if i try to assign an issue to him, no users are shown.

there are 2 users (myself as admin +1, roles are set)

what could be my mistake?

Hi Thorsten,

Take a look at your project permission scheme and make sure the user belongs to a project role that has "Assignable User" permission.

If you have just installed JIRA, adding the user to the jira-developers role, should make him an assignable user.

Thank you


my user is a jira developer but i still cannot assign them an issue?

Does the second person have assignable user permission? Please check your permission scheme and see what users, groups or roles have this permission. Then check these against that user.

I just had this same issue. Thanks Udo, helped me find the issue.
