Request Type can't be changed from Service Desk issue

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Troubleshooting issues with request types

Make sure the group the user is in is assigned to the service desk team role of the project and the permission scheme Transition permission has the service desk team role assigned to it.

Hope this helps.
