How can I unsubscribe from a filter? The filter was created by someone else and the subscription is for a group.

How can I unsubscribe from a filter? The filter was created by someone else and the subscription is for a group. Its OK to unsubscribe the whole group but I can not find how. The person does not work for the company anymore.

A JIRA Administrator can change the ownsership of the filter and then manage it.

I share this problem. I changed the owner of the filter to myself, but I still could not unsubscribe the group as the previous owner did the subscribe. Am I missing something?

The person who owns the subscription, not the filter, has to change the subscription. If that person is not available, I suppose you could change the sharing permissions on the filter itself (e.g. stop sharing with that group) and who knows, maybe it will drop the subscription too.

Thanks David. I tried to remove the subscription by changing the sharing, but it did not work.

I ended up just deleting the filter and recreating it.
