I have two projects. I want to move issues from one project to another. The 'move to' action is disabled. It says I need to set permission for this. How to set the permission for 'move to'?
Hi @Xia Willuhn,
Welcome to Atlassian Community!
In order to be able to move an issue you need to have the create issue permission in the project you are moving the issue to. To do that, go the other project and check the permission scheme to find out what permission you need, by default you need to be part of the developer role in the project to get create permissions.
Just because you have admin permissions in the target project does not automatically give you create issue permissions. You have to check the permission scheme used and make sure that you either belong to the role that gives you create permission, or add administrators to that permission. Have a look at How do Jira permissions work? for more details on how permissions works.
Okay, then you are using next-gen projects and they do not have a permission scheme. I assume you want to do a bulk move, and in order to do that you have to enable the make bulk changes global permission. You can do that by:
Do you have different fields in the two projects? Or different issue types? This is what is needed to move issues:
Move any issue
This permission allows people to move an issue to another project on your Jira site. To successfully move an issue, they also need permission to create issues in the target project.
This permission requires product access to Jira Software. Learn more about giving people access to you Atlassian products.
This is from Next-gen permissions
