Hi I have problems with transitions, I want to have a role which is able to edit only own issues, yet it is able to do status transitions on an issue that is assigned to this user.
but it seems I cannot change status unless I have EditIssue permission
the user has "Add notes" permission,
and in different versions of documentation I can see that do make a transition a user should have either Edit Issues or Add notes permisssion. In some other documentation versions there is "either Edit issues" like it was cut in half.....
any pointers here?

Let me confirm my interpretation of your explanation.
  • Users with the "Edit own issues" permission should be able to change the status of an issue if assigned to it.
  • You couldn't actually change the status as you thought.

The "Edit own issues" permission allows you to edit only the issues you created. Therefore, if you are assigned to a issue, you cannot edit the issue unless you are the issue author.

Probably this is not a defect, but a request for new features.
