Filter - specify columns returned in filter results?

I have a "shared" filter, but want to ensure that the same columns display for whoever runs it and it not being contingent of the end user having to hide columns in their own view after the filter is run.

You can use "tools -> set columns for this filter" on saved filters.

When people visit the shared filter, they'll get your columns at first (they can opt to swap to their own if they want, but that won't alter what you've set)

Nic - I am an "ondemand" user. and I also do have admin privledges, but I do not have that option in my tools. but I am looking at a report after this initial save/share.

Is this option a one time option when creating the filter?

Admin rights give you admin rights. Not "everything", and it's not relevant when we're talking about sharing filters.

You DO have the right to set columns on any filter that you own. You won't get it on filters that belong to other people. You can only set the column order when you open a filter in the issue navigator, you won't get it on reports/gadgets/etc.


Quick answer for modern JIRA (2017):

As long as you're the owner of the filter, you can just add/remove/reorder columns on the filter's list view.  Make sure your column settings are 'Filter' and not 'My Defaults' or 'System'.jiracolumnfilter.jpg


P.S. Wow, Atlassian crushes images really badly.
