Permission for Board Creation & Board Administration

Patrick Roos January 8, 2021

Hi 

Which permission on a permission schema is responsible for the board creation and board administration? Or where could the board permission managed globally, e.g. every person in a specific group can administer the boards?

Thanks for your help.

Regards, Patrick

Hi @Patrick Roos ,

It's a global permission. 

Create shared objects permission I think.

Which is meant for creating dashboards and filters and boards.

Greetings @KAGITHALA BABU ANVESH ,

I do not see any permission named "Create shared objects" when I go to the permission scheme of that project shown on the screenshot, however, the user confirmed to me that they actually do see the "Create board" button.

Could you please elaborate and explain a bit more how does this permission work? 

Why am I unable to see it in that project's permission scheme? 

Is there a way to see how and who granted that permission to which group? 

Kind regards,

Svetlin

Any user can create a board. To share a board the Share dashboards and filters global permission is required.

When a board is created, the creator becomes the board administrator and can add other administrators via the board settings. Only the board admin can change the board filter query

The administration of boards is determined by a combination of Jira admin, Project admin, and board admin - depending on the operation being performed. Full details of how board permissions work are about halfway down the page of:

Helpful answer, but 404 on the link.

Hello, 

I am in the case where the creators of the board left the project and have no more access to the JIRA project. I don't know how to proceed to change the board administrators. I do have Administrators rights but I cannot do anything about the board.

If somebody have an idea, it would be very welcome! :)
