Comments are not added to issues after using the Comment Handler service. Logs contain errors like:

JiraQuartzScheduler_Worker-1 WARN ServiceRunner Comment Services [service.util.handler.AbstractCommentHandler] JIRA SE ADMIN does not have permission to comment on an issue in project: 10030


The comments are not added due to limited permissions.


  1. Find the project for which this user does not have permission, by running an SQL query:

    SELECT * FROM project where ID = '<enter ID from WARN message>'

    This should give you the project name.

  2. In the upper-right corner of the screen, select Administration  > Projects.

  3. Select a desired project. 
  4. In the Project settings, go to Project Permissions
  5. Ensure that the user is in the appropriate group or role for the "Add Comment" permission.
