Welcome to the community !!

To edit a issue, you should have "Edit permissions" on the ticket. 
And to change the status, you should have "Transition" issue permission. 

Please contact your jira admin or the project admin to grant you the required permissions. 

How do you know who your jira admin is? Thank you in advance

@LAURA_SORIA if you are in your project and you go to Project Settings (at the bottom of the list on the left) and then go to People, you should be able to see who the jira admin is.

Hi @Summer_Hogan ,

Project settings button is displayed only for project admins. 


You need to ask your fellow colleagues.
