how to add another owners to dashboard so all owners can view and edit the dashboard.

Hi Abhinav, you can share a dashboard so other people can view it by following the instructions at https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/managing-multiple-dashboard-pages-185729437.html#ManagingMultipleDashboardPages-SharingDashboardPages

You can only have 1 owner of a dashboard though, only 1 person can edit it. You can change ownership of a dashboard by following the instructions at https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/managing-shared-dashboards-257458472.html

Remember to share any filters used by gadgets on the dashboard too - https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/using-filters-185729481.html#UsingFilters-sharing_filtersSharingafilter

Hi Andrew, I have shared the filters and dashboard with my team, But Me and My Manager want to be the owners on the Dashboards so we both can edit it .. While doing some R & D on this i found that this feature is not yet added, is it TRUE ?

Hi Abhinav, there's an open feature request for allowing multiple people to edit filters and dashboards at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-17783 , but it's not implemented and the last update in December 2015 says there are still no plans to implement this feature. So it's not added and is unlikely to be added for the foreseeable future (if at all).

A possible workaround is to create a new user that both you and your manager have the username and password for and make that the owner of the dashboard. Drawback of that approach is you'd have to log out yourself and log in as that user to edit the dashboard.

Or, if you're both JIRA admins, you claim ownership of the dashboard when you want to make a change and your manager claims ownership of the dashboard when they want to make a change.

Yeah those are Great inputs even I thought of creating a common Sample user ID, but its hard to log in and out all the time, And thank you for your time and inputs will try to use them. 

If you don't want to log in and out all the time, you can use different browsers  (IE and Chrome) and in one(Chrome) you only use your real user ID and in the other (IE)you only use it with the dummy account. I do this all the time when I have to test changes I make for a role without the hassle of log in and out.
