why can't my project admin configure her project boards ?

as a JIRA admin (cloud) I've created a project and a user.  I've added that user as the project admin.

THe project has the default scrum board and I've added a kanban board as well (for the ready board)

but the project admin can't configure the boards ! ?    

What's wrong here ?

Thx for your reactions.

The problem was that I made the project and boards thru my admin account.  So although I added the scrum master as project lead and administrator I was still the board administrator (in the board>configure>general tab) I still had to replace me with the scm account.

Does your user have admin access to all the projects included in the board filter?

Hi Oliver,


You can check by opening the project and click on Project Administration.

Check the project Roles.
