Permission for Board Creation & Board Administration


Which permission on a permission schema is responsible for the board creation and board administration? Or where could the board permission managed globally, e.g. every person in a specific group can administer the boards?

Thanks for your help.

Regards, Patrick

Hi @Patrick Roos ,

It's a global permission. 

Create shared objects permission I think.

Which is meant for creating dashboards and filters and boards.

Any user can create a board. To share a board the Share dashboards and filters global permission is required.

When a board is created, the creator becomes the board administrator and can add other administrators via the board settings. Only the board admin can change the board filter query

The administration of boards is determined by a combination of Jira admin, Project admin, and board admin - depending on the operation being performed. Full details of how board permissions work are about halfway down the page of: 

(although this is server documentation, it applies to cloud)
