How to enable the "Transition" for spectific project

when i used the bulk change issue button to close code smell issues, there is not display the “Transition” part, I have tried to adjust the user’s project sonar account permission as “Administer Security Hotspots” , “Administer”, “Execute Analysis”, but still can’t view this “Transition”, i want to change the issue status as below:

  • Confirm
  • Resolve as false positive
  • Resolve as fixed
  • Resolve as won’t fix

Our SonarQube version:

Does the user have Administer Issues permission? If so, can you share a screenshot of one of the issues they can’t transition?

The user has administration issue permission but then also can’t mark any issue reported by FortifySCA as the transition.
Please any help is much appreciated. attached screenshot for your reference. Even tags are missing.
