It is possible to control who can create a board.
You'll need to navigate to Global Permissions and edit the "Create Shared Objects" permission to only include the group of users that you would like to create dashboards.
This does also affect who can share filters globally as well.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for your reply! Thanks to @Scott Theus too!
I believe this solution could apply to Jira Server instances, but I am using a Cloud instance. When I navigate to Global Permissions section, these are the permissions I can edit (visit this link for more info):
- Administer Jira
- Browse users and groups
- Share dashboards and filters
- Manage group filter subscriptions
- Make bulk changes
- Create independent projects
I tried changing Share dashboards and filters permissions, but it doesn't seem to affect the ability to create boards.
Any other options?
I believe there is a global permission called "Create Shared Objects" that will restrict who can create boards. For more information check out the documentation here"
