Use of “in” with ablative

I'm hoping someone can clarify the meaning of the medieval Latin phrase "in ipsa" when referring to a decision or action not being "in" or "upon" someone, which I assume means that the decision isn't theirs to make? Here's the sentence: ""Quae Johanna iterum respondit quod in ipsa non erat hoc facere ; et, si in ipsa esset, hoc esset bene cito factum."
