Is there a way to subscribe individual users to a filter. I understand user can do that, but I want it to do it as administrator, rather than asking the user to do it. I would not want to create a group just for this purpose unless I have to.
Apparently, only the owner of a filter is able to make changes to the filter, and also manage the filter subscription for other users/groups/role. And as administrator, apparently you don't have the privilege to make changes to other user filters.
However although you can't directly make changes to the filter owned by other user, you can actually change the filter ownership to other user, or to yourself. This means that a possible workaround for this situation is for you to change the ownership of the filter to yourself, make changes to the filter subscription, and change the filter ownership back to the original owner. More details on this is described in the following documentation:
I hope that this will help.
There isn't a way to assign single users into a subscription right now. The alternative though, is to go to that filter and share it with that user with a note to make sure to sign up.
That improvement request is similar to what you're looking for. You should leave your thoughts there to express your interest.
