"error": "You are not allowed to add milestones (insufficient permissions)."



I am not able to add Milestone to my project.

When I use the Postman service to add the milestone, it shows “error”: "You are not allowed to add milestones (insufficient permissions)."
I already have Add/Edit permission for Milestone.
Is this a bug or do I need to check the subscriptions.


Hi Deepak,

Thanks for your posting. Please check that your user account has the required permissions to add a new milestone to the target project and this can be the only reason why you see this message. Even if your assigned global role allows you to add milestones, this may be overridden for the project you are testing this with and you or a TestRail admin can check this on the project’s access settings (Administration > Projects > edit the project > Access).
