You can change the Owner 

Go to Jira Administration > System > Shared Filter then, find the filter. Click the ... icon on the right of the filter and choose "Change Owner"

Hi @it-arief.heldian 

It is not possible to change the ownership of boards in Jira cloud to my knowledge.

The options available to you are:

  • Change the board filters share and potentially ownership so users can still edit various aspects of the board and also change the board administrator list or
  • Create a new board with the same setting of the existing board and then delete the existing one.

As mentioned here: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Agile-questions/How-do-I-change-the-owner-of-a-board-when-their-user-has-been/qaq-p/1256010 in the answer by Atlassian, I believe this is not possible at the moment unfortunately.

As I mentioned you cannot change the board owner.

The closest alternatives are what I listed to you. 

In the first case the owner stays the same but users still have necessary access to make the changes needed and in the second, you replace the board by creating a new one.

Regards.
