not allow user to create scrum or kanban board in jira agile


is there a way to avoid my users create themself scrum or kanban board. In general, there is a little bit configuration to do and in general they don't do it correctly. I would prefer the scrumboard was create by developpers. Simple users could be only see the board and that's all.

is there a way to do that ?

Thanks by advance

Hi Jerome,

There isn't , you could remove the "Create Shared Objects" General permission for them.

This will still allow them to create boards, but they will not be able to share them.

Some more information about the permissions in Jira Agile can be found here :
