To change the Default behaviour of the sharing of filter from "everyone" to a particular group.

Hi All,

Being a jira administartor, is it possible to change thedefault behaviour of the filter share from "evryone" to a particular group. i mean. whenever any user creates a filter, then the filter is shared by "everyone" by default. I want to modify this so that instead of this, the filter is shared by a particular group by default. is it possible?

Hi Megha,

This is a user preference, if you go to your profile you'll see a setting called Filter and Dashboard sharing. If this is set to public all filters and dashboards will be automatically shared with everybody. If this is set to private nothing will be shared by default.

As far as I know this is the only setting that auto shares filters and dashboards.

You cannot disabled this for each user individually but you could set the user preferences to private for new users. This can be done in the User preference section of the User Management Admin part of JIRA.

Best regards,
