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.

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?
