I want to change a bunch of filter owners, but I would like to do that without login with each user. Is there any way to achieve this on the database?

You can use the following SQL queries for achieve this:

Use this one to discover the ID of each filter:

select * from searchrequest

Then use this one for updating the owner, for the desired filter ID:

update searchrequest set authorname = newowner where id = desiredfilterid

or use this one for changing the ownership according to the username:

update searchrequest set authorname = newusername where authorname = oldusername

Take a backup before running it directly in production.

Pedro Souza.


Another option would be to use script runner plugin. It provides built-in script to change the owner of filters and dashboards.
