    Description

      Issue Summary

      The inconsistent behavior of the SAVE function being available for the Feature work item which is different than what is observed in the other work items

       

      This is related to the Role permission toggles: 

      Additional Options > Permissions > Add Agile Objects

      Additional Options > Permissions > Manage Agile Objects(Admin)

       

      In the following scenario, there seems to be inconsistent behavior of the SAVE function being available for the Feature work item in relation to the above two toggles:

      1. With both "Add" and "Manage" Agile Objects turned Off

      1.  The user in the role is NOT able to add/save work items such as:
        1. Story
        2. Epics 
        3. Themes
      2. However, with those same settings the user in the role is able to SAVE existing Features (Jira Epics), but is not able to add them. 

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Navigate to Administration > Roles
      2. Select a Role that has the Save/Add toggles enabled on the individual work item side:
        1. Portfolio > Manage > Themes > 'Save' and 'Add'
        2. Portfolio > Manage > Portfolio Epics > 'Add' (just a note, there is no Save toggle so I didn't mention it here)
        3. Program > Manage > Features(Jira Epics) > 'Save' and 'Add'
        4. Team > Manage > Stories > 'Save' and 'Add'
      3. Make sure both "Add" and "Manage" Agile Objects toggles are turned Off under Additional Options > Permissions
      4. Log in as a user with the above role
      5. Navigate to the Stories, Portfolio Epics, or Themes grid
      6. Notice the user is NOT able to add/save the respective work items. The 'Add', and 'Create' buttons are hidden in the main grid. Similarly, the 'Save' and 'Save & Close' buttons in the work item slide-out are hidden.
      7. Now navigate to the Features grid
      8. Notice the 'Add', and 'Create' buttons are hidden, same as the above work items
      9. However, notice the 'Save' and 'Save & Close' buttons are available/displayed in the Feature slide-out. This is not consistent with other work items.

      Expected Results

      The Save and Add behavior should be consistent in all work items.

      Actual Results

      The 'Save' and 'Save & Close' buttons are available/displayed in the Feature slide-out while they are not available in other work items with the same role permission settings

      Workaround

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