I dont see "Create Shared Objects" permission on the Global Permissions list, why?

I am included in "site Admin" group. Instead of "Create Shared Objects" I see the permission "Share dashboards and filters" on the  global permissions list. Why is this?

I need to create a user group who can create multiple boards,dashboards and reports on a JIRA project.

Why is this permission missing in my global permissions view?

Hi @Udayangi Mohotti,

These are the same, the name changed recently I think.

What are you trying to accomplish with the permission?

Hi Patrick,

Many thanks for your response!

I am a SITE ADMIN, additionally I created a separate group to which I have given "Share dashboards and filters" permission ti that group. I am a member of that group too.


I have created a project.  In the process I created a default KANBAN board. But now I need to create another board which I need to create as a Scrum board. These are for two teams. Actually I need 4 boards on the same project. Default board with all  BL items and three others for different dev teams.

When I try to create a board I get this error. 



  • You do not have permission to share. All shares are invalid.
  • The user 'Udayangi Mohotti' does not have permission to share. The owner has not been changed.



searching on that on Alstian documentation tells me that I need "Create Shared Objects" permission.


Could you please let me know what I am missing?



Just because you are a site admin doesn't mean that you have the "share dashboards and filters permission".  Can you please ensure that you have that permission?

@Patrick Cartier [Candylio] I am also a member of a group which I created. For this group I granted share dashboards and filters permission.  That is the reason I was expecting I will be able to create the Jira board.

However today I added the same permission to another group I am in called "administrators", after that I can create multiple boards on my project.


So I now get expected result. However, I need to explore more why adding the permission to my other group did not work. I will post  here if I find the answer.


Many thanks for your time and support!!

It sounds like a group/permission issue.

Please let us know if you find the answer!

Glad I could help!

There seems to be the issue in JIRA cloud. After the upgrade, certain new users don't get previous rights propagated. However if you re-add the same group or add a new group in which new users exist, the issues goes away.

Hi All,

It indeed it was a permission issue.  "Share dashboards and filters"  was the permission required.

I had made a mistake in the user group I added the  "Share dashboards and filters"  permission.

Sorting that out helped the issue. Also, I needed SITE Admin rights to add this permission to myself.  Thanks all for your input!
