The user need the "browse user" permission.

Hi Jan,

This should answer your question : https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Emailing+an+Issue

Best regards,


Note the "Browse users and groups" permission is a global permission, not managed through permission schemes as are most of the permissions. In my case I had granted that global permission to a group "users" but I hadn't made every person a member of that group, so, I was seeing inconsistent visibility of the "share this issue" button.
