Does 'Create Shared Objects' give you permission to create filters and dashboards?

Does 'Create Shared Objects' give you permission to create filters and dashboards?  The description of this global permission says that this permission is to be able to share them(not to create them).

Create Shared Objects

Ability to share dashboards and filters with other users, groups and roles.

Hi Carlos,

Are you running into an issue creating Dashboards?

I took a look at my Global permissions and it was blank for Create Shared Objects.  Moreover, when I added a specific group to Create Shared Objects and logged in with a user that wasn't in that group I was still able to create a dashboard, however, I do not have the option to Share a dashboard as the permission states.  In addition, I was unable to create a Scrum board:

Create Shared Objects

Permission to share a filter or dashboard globally or with groups of users. Also used to control who can create an agile board.

Anyone can create dashboards and filters but they will not be able to share them without this permission:

 

You need the Create Shared Object global permission to configure sharing for a filter. Contact your JIRA administrator to obtain this permission.

Cheers,

Branden

Thanks for the clarification, Branden. I was confused because the name of the permission says "Create", but I've also observed the behavior that you described (that anyone can create dashboards and filters).  I understand now.  Thanks!
