How do I set up a filter subscription for a different user?

I am on Jira Cloud.  I am reading the doc at Working with search results which says:


Subscribing to your search results

A subscription provides you with a periodic notification for all issues returned by the search. If you want to be notified when a particular issue changes, you should watch the issue instead.

Your search must be saved as a filter, if you want to create an email subscription for it. You can create a subscription of any frequency for yourself and/or other users. Note, only the first 200 results of a filter are sent.

  1. Run the filter that you want to subscribe to, then click Details (next to filter name).
  2. Fill in the 'Filter Subscription form' and click Subscribe.


I am trying to set up a subscription to a filter for another user.  Following the instructions, I can see nothing on the New Subscription screen that allows for the specification of another user or group:

Anybody have a clue where to select a different user or group?

Hi Scott,

One item to check is that you have the 'Manage Group Filter Subscriptions' global permission. This is required to set subscriptions for other users/groups.

Hope this helps,


Hi Danny,

That was it, thank you!
