These type of issues tend to occur when the addon permission is not set on the permission scheme. Workflow scheme has permission set for a transition.

Step 1 : Access the project in question

Step 2 : Go to project settings → permissions and ensure that the "Atlassian-addons-project-access" role is added to all the permissions in the list.

Step 3 : Check if the rule can run, if the error occurs again, then follow step 4.

Step 4 : Now, we could determine that the workflow transitions may have a permissions setup.

Step 5 : Go to the transition, click on condition → Add one more condition to the transition by clicking on "Add condition"

Step 6 : User is in project role → Choose the "atlassian-addons-project-access"

Step 7 : Choose "Any of the below conditions" in the drop down
