Issue/Introduction

When trying to create a work item in Rally using the API, the following error is seen in the response body:

This can be caused by trying to create a work item type within a project to which the user has no access.

Resolution

The ways to resolve this are

  • Change the integration to use a user ID with appropriate permissions
  • Modify the permissions of the current user to include the project where the work item is being created
  • Create the work item in a different project that the user does have access to
