Why would a filter work for me but not others in my organization?

I have a filter like:  project in (IDS, AT, BACE, FB, SAL, WG, BHSI) ORDER BY Rank ASC

It works for me and returns >2000 records.  I shared it with others who get the following:


What am I doing wrong? 


Thanks in advance.

Normally it's due to permissions. In order to see results from a filter, the user needs to have permission/s in the project. 

Notice the errors "the value X does not exist for the field project" - it's trying not to give away that there is a project there with that code to people who can't see it.

Sometimes this happens when people try to use a filter but they are logged out. The */issues/* URL's don't prompt for login if the instance is public.

Long and short of it....everyone agrees that it is a permissions problem. They are either not logged in, don't have permissions to browse the issues in the projects, or some other permissions setting. 

Thanks everybody.  I am chasing that angle but what is weird about this is that I am getting no complaints about working actual tickets and a similar query with what I presume is an older style does work.  (project in (10500, 14200, 13000, 12800, 11200) ORDER BY Rank ASC)  (Numbers changed just in case)  The problem came when I was adding a couple more projects to the project in and JIRA automatically changed the saved query to be the keys.
