Unable to save filters

I'm unable to save filters in jira ondemand. All I get is a new log in screen and a message that I don't have the right permissions. Which permissions control this?

if you want to share a filter you have to have the global permission "Create shared object". Maybe you have tried to share the filter when you created it?

Please note, you need the 'Create Shared Object' global permission to be able to share your filter. If you cannot see the 'Shares' fields, contact your JIRA Administrator to have this permission added to your profile.

Just a guess,

I have lots of private filters which were imported with my old jira database. I can delete them, but I can't edit them. When I try to edit a private filter I get the error message "Grunde Waag does not have permission to access this page."

You have to see in the Filter Administration who is the owner of the filter. If you aren't the owner then that's why you can't edit them.

Yes, I'm the owner.
