Is it possible to script changing shared filters "Shared with" field?

Jira 7.2.2 eliminated the functionality of shares (dashboards, filters) to be accessed by public/anonymous users if your instance is not public. I have numerous filters that have the "Shared with" field populated with "Shared with public" that I would like to change to "Shared with logged-in users" as a bulk. Anything "Shared with public" is moved to "Shared with logged-in users". Is this possible?

Pretty sure this is the solution:

1. Run the following query: 
     update SHAREPERMISSIONS 
     SET SHARETYPE = 'loggedin' 
     WHERE SHARETYPE = 'global' AND entitytype = 'SearchRequest' 

2. Run the following query: 
     update SHAREPERMISSIONS 
     SET SHARETYPE = 'loggedin' 
     WHERE SHARETYPE = 'global' AND entitytype = 'PortalPage' 

3.Restart JIRA 

4. Perform indexing

Hi Rich,

Thank you for posting that solution here.

As in run that query against the database?

May I ask which database you are using? and if this worked successfully?

I'm a little hesitant to run a query against a database without knowing the impacts.

Hi John,

Yes. Run it against your database using a tool like SQL Developer. I used that tool to run the SQL statements against our Oracle DB and it worked perfectly.

If you are uncomfortable running these, please seek a DB Admin in your organization to review them. Also, check out the ref link where I identified the solution.

Hesitation to run a SQL statement against your DB without understanding what its doing is a good thing. :)
