      Issue Summary

      Unable to set ownerId on Tasks endpoint with POST or PATCH calls
      Currently, these are the responses:

      HTTP 400
      Cannot create task. ownerId doesn't belong to the same team as storyId

      HTTP 400
      Cannot update task with id <id>. ownerId doesn't belong to the same team as storyId

      Steps to Reproduce

      Validated the following scenarios via UI:

      Scenario: Story has NO related Agile team

      Method #1 – Add via Quick Add section within Story slide-out panel

      Task Owner can be selected among the team members of the following teams: any teams related to the Program (the Program team itself + any other Agile or Kanban team)

      Method #2 – Via Task grid page

      Same as above + the current user

      Scenario: Story HAS one related Agile team

      Method #1 – via Quick Add section within Story slide-out panel

      same as previous scenario Task Owner can be selected among the team members of the following teams: any teams related to the Program (the Program team itself + any other Agile or Kanban team)

      Method #2 – Via Task grid page

      Once Story is selected, Task Owner can be selected among the associated Agile team members + the current user notice Program team members are no longer allowed as explicit Agile team has been assigned

      Expected Results

      • API should mirror the minimum validation presented in the UI.

        The Task Owner must be a member of Program Team or Agile Team associated to the respective Story.

        The relationship chain is like:

        • Program (Program Team) >> Agile Team >> Story >> Task
        Program Agile Team Story Task

        So before trying to select an Owner for a Task you must validate that user's membership to some of those teams.

      Actual Results

      • API returns 40x:

        HTTP 400
        Cannot create task. ownerId doesn't belong to the same team as storyId

        HTTP 400
        Cannot update task with id <id>. ownerId doesn't belong to the same team as storyId

      Workaround

      Currently there is no known workaround for this behavior. A workaround will be added here when available.
