project admin can't see project settings

Hi all,

I've added a user as the project lead and to the project administrator role yet he cannot see the Project Settings option and therefore cannot configure the project. Permissions helper says he should be able to do this.

What's missing here?

For reference, the logged bug is



I am having the same issue, ie not being able to access a project’s setting.  Do I need to be set up with an admin account?  Also as I was uploading the project portfolio to Jira I noticed a duplicate entry and need to delete a project is that done through ‘settings’ menu?



Yes, you need to be an admin to work with the admin stuff.
