Sharing filters is broken?

Hi, this might be a bug. But I might be missing a hidden setting or something.


I created a JIRA filter and I want to share it with others. I can't find the Edit Permissions link under the Permissions in the JIRA filter popup window.

Is this a bug?


JIRA Version: 6.4-OD-05-009 (on demand).

Thank you.

Yes. I don't have the sharing permissions available to me (see attached). Even though, I am a JIRA Admin. I should have ALL permissions required.

This leads me to believe that this is a bug.

You need to check if you have the Create Shared Object's permission (

That was it. Thanks man! PS. I would remove this permission altogether, or at least always kept it on. It is super confusing.

Have you tried doing it from the Filter Management?
