You are unable to edit tasks (even if you are assigned to them) for that project in the New User Experience (UX). In most cases, the updates are being applied to the task but you continue to see the error.
One of the following errors is generated when you try to edit a task on the Tasks tab:
"API-1007: You are not authorized to process request. Contact your system administrator for necessary security rights"
Steps to Reproduce:
Results: Receive one of the following error messages and you are unable to edit the task. "API-1007: You are not authorized to process request. Contact your system administrator for necessary security rights" or "Error: Project.tasks.errors.couldNotPatchCard"
Additionally, the access right "Project - Task Management" does not show up in the instance level access rights, which is what is preventing you from being able to edit tasks:
Release: All Supported
Component: Clarity Project Management
This is due to you not automatically being granted the access right 'Project - Task Management access' at the Instance level for that project. You are therefore unable to edit tasks on either the Task Board or List view. For versions prior to 15.9, this can happen in particular you are added to a project team via Clarity Classic UI or added using the role replace functionality (in the New UX or Classic UI). In 15.9 and higher, you will see this in additional scenarios as well.
Ensure you have the following access right: Project - Task Management which can be granted at the instance, OBS or the Global level. Note: This access will give you access to edit all tasks on the project, not just assigned tasks. In the Modern UX, there is no access to be able to edit just assigned tasks.
The Project - Task Management access right is no longer automatically granted. It must be manually assigned using the steps above. See New UX staff Access Rights no longer auto assigned in 15.9
Team members are automatically granted the access right 'Project - Task Management' at the instance level if they are added to a project directly from the 'Conversations' section of the project in the New UX or if the team member is assigned to tasks on the Project Tasks list or board views in the New UX. Below are a couple of additional options to assign the access.
The user will then have access to all the tasks on that specific project.
The user will then have the access right 'Project - Task Management' for that project.
