(solved) Dashboards: Editor privileges do not work (Function since jira 7.12.x)


Hello everyone,
since version 7.12 there is the possibility to give another jira user editor rights to a dashboard.

Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work or is expected differently from me.
I can't see any editing function on the dashboard.

Anyone with the same problem or an idea?

Errors in JIRA:
There are problems when using groups.
In this case the jira-administrators which must not be used by normal users. This disturbs the calculation of the rights and the user does not get access.

2nd error: Single users are only resolved as "" in the GUI.

Hi Tom,

I have the same problem on v7.13.5. Sorry, but i don't understand, what do you mean under "In this case the jira-administrators which must not be used by normal users"? And how did you solve this issue, because as i see it's not global

Sorry to be vague about that.

I meant that dashboards that are to be managed by normal users are not allowed to contain jira-groups.
Normal users are not allowed to add groups to dashboards.
If there are group already inserted, the user cannot make any changes to the dashboard.

Hi, i solved my issue). There was interruption of groups in my case. Dashboard was shared for group1 (VIEW) and group2 (EDIT), but user of group2 could not edit dashboard because he was not member of group1.

Have you check the /secure/admin/GlobalPermissions!default.jspa, for Create Shared Objects permission? Also, as i know user can see groups he belongs to

Seems like that is this Bug and it's old and not resolved. We still have the problem :-(

Like maguialahmar likes this


We have the same trouble on Server (8.9.0). We add the editor permission for a user and she can't able to edit the dashboard. Does anyone have a solution for this?
