Is it possible for admins to access and share private filters?

Imagine a user created a filter, forgot to share it, send the link by mail to some people who should use it, and after this ran off for holiday. Sure, the people who got the mails will complain.

Is there any way for a JIRA adminstrator to access and to share the filter? I mean without altering database tables.

Hello Evelin,

If the filter is not shared, the administrator won't see it, so he won't be able to edit it. If the filter was shared with him, you would be able to grab the ownership of it and make the changes you wish.

In your case, though, you'd have to do database changes.


Thanks. I guessed so but know I know for sure.
