There is a built-in script Change dashboard or filter ownership in the script runner plugin, although I think I noticed this was possible in 5.0. Not sure though.

Updating to current: > System > Shared Dashboards, find the dashboard to be edited, change owner from the cog on the right.

As for Jira 7.5.3, I can't see Administration | System | Shared Dashboards, but only Administration | System | System-Dashboard.

If I open a dashboard other than System-Dashboard, there ist no Edit Dashboard in the ... menu.

Thus I cannot change/edit any Dashboard other than System-Dashboard.

Its a Jira-Server, so go to Boards | View all. Go to "..." and delete or open your own board and edit.

Sorry to bother.

4.0 will now allow you to do that. In the past I have gotten around it by creating a 'generic' account, and anyone who needs to manage the dashboard logs into that account and makes the appropriate changes.
