    Description

      When a user attempts to manage a sprint involving multiple projects without necessary permissions for each project, the error message states that they need Project Administrator permission for each project, rather than just the projects for which they do not have permission.

      Example

      Scenario

      • Sprint involves 'Project A', 'Project B', 'Project C'
      • 'testuser1' has Project Administrator permission to projects 'Project A' and 'Project B', but not 'Project C'

      Current Behavior

      1. 'testuser1' attempts to start a sprint
      2. Resulting error messages displays:

        Error
        To update this sprint you must have Project Administrator permissions for all of the following projects: Project A, Project B, Project C.

      Desired Behavior

      1. 'testuser1' attempts to start a sprint
      2. Resulting error message displays something like:

        Error Managing Sprint
        You are missing Project Administrator permissions for the following projects: Project C. Please contact your JIRA Administrator.
