Can I change or anonymize the Subscriber for filter subscriptions?

I've set up some filter subscriptions that go to specific groups, but a key stakeholder has asked if I can alter or anonymize the Subscriber (which shows my ID). I realize that this is kind of an edge case, but details matter.

I informed him that this is due to my having set the subscription up. I can't find info on how this could be changed, other than:

  • Asking him to set up the subscription (which still leaves his ID as Subscriber)
  • Asking/training >100 end users to each subscribe to the shared filter

Thanks in advance,

The only solution I can think of is to create some kind of generic Jira admin account, and then use that account to setup the subscriptions.  It is not truly anonymous, it will have some email address/username.  But you could use this as a means to remove yourself from the equation here.


Thanks for the help. I do have a support DL set up for this instance and will propose adding this as a system account/subscription owner.




Thanks again. The stakeholders were fine with this solution.
