Changing groups of shared filters created by other users

Tayyab Bashir Community Champion May 12, 2017


When people create filters, they can also share them with other people or groups. 
In share permissions, there is a permission to add a group, and gets allowed to see the shared filter.

I want to change that group and replace it some other group. 

For example, someone has a filter "somone's filter" and its shared with group ABC, I want to change that and replace ABC with XYZ, so that the filter "somone's filter" get shared with XYZ instead.

I am a JIRA admin, and we have to replace a old group with another new group. I do know that natively you can't do this. 

So in order to preserve the working of shared filters, we have to replace it. 
I'm looking for a way to do that in Database? Or through rest calls?

As an admin, you can change the ownership of shared filters and then update the shares yourself.

I think it is also possible to update them via the JIRA REST API using a combination of:

There's an argument here for always making sure filter pemissions are project/role based, so that it is easier to change the associated groups.
