Copy an agile board?



We've recently noticed that copying a board that you own re-creates it without an administrator.  You can then no longer edit it - it then say 

Contact a JIRA or Board Administrator to configure this board.

I'm pretty sure this hasn't always been the case?  We have Agile 6.6.51

We have the same problem. Any solution here?

I can verify this, we have the same problem.

I created a support ticket for this problem, and Atlassian confirmed it's a bug in Jira. Here is their answer:

"I have tried to reproduce the issues in my local instance and was able to get the same behavior. After some digging around, I've found out that this is a known bug currently being tracked under: GHS-11604. Since the bug is still in "Awaiting for Development" status, we can try the suggested workaround for the meantime:


The Board Owner of the original board must add the Board admins to the copy manually

  • Log in as Board Owner
  • Configure Board
  • Under General Edit Administrators
  • Add desired Groups or Users

An alternative would be to login as an admin (just like what you have done) and add the desired group/users."

+1 here. I've got board users begging for fixes or worse Admin rights so they can fix them.
