Change owner of project / Issue Filters

I have been able to create some quick filters for my project. When I go to manage filters, It tells me I have no filters. I think the issue is b/c I am not the owner of the project

How can I change the owner of a project: If you see the screenshot

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Nikhil,

The project leader can be changed through the Administration » Projects » Platform API » Roles (tab). You can also change the ownership of filters as per our Managing Shared Filters documentation.

A quick filter is for use within your Agile boards and reports. It's NOT a full saved filter, as it's only associated with that board. Only the saved filter from your screenshot is a full filter and it'll belong to the creator of the board.

Manage filters refers to standard Jira filters (formed from the questions you ask in the "issues" drop down)
