I've got an AD group for system administrators that I've given the all the other Jira permissions, but when I try and give the group the "Users" permission I get the error:
The group 'SYSADMIN' is not allowed to be added to the permission 'JIRA User'
I seem to be able to add any other AD group, just not this one. I don't see anything being reported in the logs. Is there setting I need to fix?
The issue appears to be the same as this question.
Jira is trying to stop you from accidentally granting ALL your users complete system admin rights.
So... if you could do what you're trying to do, then from the point at which you did it, any new users you add would be granted system adminstration rights. Which is probably a bad idea.
Anyway, there's a really simple fix - don't do it. There's absolutely no point in adding admin groups in there. All the "use jira" permission does is let you log in. All administrators can log in as well. So they already have all the rights you'd be giving them by adding the group.
Okay, I've switched the permisions but when I try and share a filter using a user in the "sysadmin" group I get back a page that says: "'User' does not have permission to access this page." The user can create new shared objects, as per the Global Permission, but cannot share.
Ok, now that sounds broken. As long as they're in the sysadmin / can share objects permission, they should be fine. The fact you get offered the option means you've set it up right. But can you confirm where you're trying to share the filter from?
Hmm. You can only edit your own filter shares (admins can edit other people's filters via admin, not the filter views), but it shouldn't be offering you that option if you can't use it.
I think this might need to go to Atlassian support, it feels broken.
