Create board permission

Hello there,

Is it possible to restrict the creation of boards in the current version of Jira Cloud?  I need to control who can create boards on our projects. Any workaround may help.

Thanks a lot!

Jesús

Hey Jesus,

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.

https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver073/managing-global-permissions-861253290.html?_ga=2.188272557.440258858.1525704700-1704423510.1524584199

This does also affect who can share filters globally as well.

Hope this helps,

Tyler

Hi Tyler, 

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?

Hey Jesus,

Not that I know of.  If it helps the "Share Dashboards and Filters" should stop users from being able to sharing boards (as they can't share their filters).

Sorry I couldn't help more,

Tyler

Hi @Jesús Jorge Muñoz 

 

Were you able to achieve board restriction on Jira cloud? I did check and found that 'Create shared objects' is not available on Jira cloud version. ant alternative ?

 

Thanks,

Vijay

Ahh, That is a shame. We are also after being able to restrict this but just on a particular project due to a specific requirement. Shame it can't be done on cloud at the project level.

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"
