Retrospectively share all user dashboards

Hi, reasonably new to JIRA here.

We've recently changed our User Preference configuration to set dashboard and filter sharing to public by default.

However, there are obviously still a number of user-defined filters and dashboard that are not set to shared. We'd like to convert these to shared and have our users now explicitly unshare their filters/dashboards.

Is there a way to do this easily within JIRA or through SQL?

Hi Adam,

If you are an administrator of JIRA (or know someone that is) and you are using JIRA 4.4 and grather..

Then you can simply change the ownership of the dashboard/filter to someone else..

For more information please look at the documentation:

I hope that helps..



Thanks Mirek. I would actually prefer to retain the original ownership and simply set all the dashboards to shared for Everyone.

I have access to the administration, and we are using JIRA 5.0.1

It seems the best I can do so far with SQL is query for all the existing shared dashboards:

select entityid,sharetype,param1 from sharepermissions where entitytype='PortalPage';

Even though this does not completely help you, this plugin may ease your job
