In Modern PPM, when selecting a staff member for task assignment, an error can appear indicating the user is not authorized to assign the staff member.
ERROR: API-1007 : You are not authorized to process request. Contact your system administrator for necessary security rights.


This issue can happen when the user does NOT have Project - Task Management access to edit tasks on the project but does have view or edit project access. This tab currently does not check for the  ‘Project - Task Management’ access right for the user. 


Applies to Modern PPM 15.5 (Also referred to as the New User Experience (UX)


This issue is under review

Workaround: Ensure that the user has the ‘Project – Task Management’ access right to allow them to manage tasks on the projects for which they should be allowed to manage.
