permission issue : viewing agile dashboard

Hi all,

I'm facing a problem :

My users cannot view the agile dashboards. When they log in, they are displayed the following error message:

The requested board cannot be viewed because it either does not exist or you do not have permission to view it.

Which permission(s) in the permission scheme control this ?

In case you ask, they already have the "browse projects" permission set.

I'm using Jira Agile OnDemand.

Thank your for your help :)

ok so, just found this :

answer was there :


when I edit the filter, I select "Group" in the "Add Shares" dropdown, but then I don't see all the groups defined in site administration, only part of them (8 over 14). Why is that ?

Therefore I cannot select the proper group, and those users are blocked :(

I suspect you have to be a member of the group you want to share with.

I kind of understand why it's set up like that - admin rights are totally separate from user rights. Sharing stuff is a user right, and it's correct that users should be in the groups they're going to share with. But yes, it would be nice if admins could bypass their group membership in this case!

Hi Nic,

good guess :) it did solve the problem actually, although IMHO it does not make sense. As an admin I should be able to configure everything, to add whichever users groups I want, without being compelled to be inside this group (that, does not make sense for me, or I missed somethnig).

But whatever, thanks a lot for answering in such short notice :) :)

yes, I see your point Nic. It seems normal from user point of view indeed.



I too faced the same issue. I have added my username to User group and it made a trick for me. THanks Nic..
