I was wondering when you share a filter in jira does that mean that it's the shared user's filter now or if I update that shared filter their filter will automatically be updated also?
You keep ownership of it, but other people can run it and get the results from it.
If you change the filter, then yes, you're changing what everyone gets (there's a single search behind the filter, not one for each user). Other people can change it once they've run it, but they cannot save those changes to your filter, they can only save it as a new one that they own.
Just to be clear (as my colleague has just misread this!) - Other people using your filter will see the changes you make, but it's not an "automatic update" - you're only changing one single object. If people have made their own copies of your filter, they won't be affected either, their filters are separate objects.
