Access rights to Agile boards Edited

Hello! I am an administrator of Jira. I want to change access rights for certain Agile board. But I cannot do it: I see only the current access rights and they are not editable. Currently this board is opened to all logged-in users.

So my question is: how I can deny to some users or groups to see this board and allow access to others?

it has been awhile since I did this but I believe you simply go to board settings>general and edit the filter share.

It is not so easy :) 

I've tried to change filter's access rights, but they are also not editable. I see only two choices in dropdown menu: change owner and delete filter. That's all. I don't see any possibility to change access rights, which are currently "Shared with everyone"

not sure you are on the screen I'm referring to. You look to be on the view filter menus and while I would think you should be able to do there as well. I'm referring to this view >>> If you go to the board you wish to change permissions on and goto board settings > General you should see something like this:


If you click the Edit Filter Shares you should get a screen that looks something like this...

BTW....if you are not the owner of the board you may need to change so that you are.


It was the ownership issue - I've only changed the owner of filter associated with board and after that I see "Edit Filter Shares". So I've clicked on it and changed permissions to group instead of "Shared with everyone"

Thank you so much, Jack!

Hi Jack,

On this same Edit Filter Shares, when I share the Edit with Project Roles within a specific Project, the list Project Roles presented to me is just Developers and Administrators or All. I had other project roles as well, such as Scrum Master, Testers, but they do not show up here in the list. Do you know why?
