Sharing Filters with Custom Groups

When I try to share a filter with groups, it only allows me to make shares to




How come the rest of the groups don't show up in there? Just those 3.

Are you member of those groups?

That's very helpful. I added myself to all groups, and now I see it.

I can't share my filter with "Executives" unless I am one? That's crazy.

Brian, if you think about it, makes sense. Differente groups can have different permissions over Jira issues, so you shouldn't be able to show a filter to somebody that may have less permissions than you. If you have permissions to handle information relevant to the "Executives" group, why you shouldn't be on that group? If that group have more permissions than you, but you want to share something with them, they they should also be in the same group you are.

This worked for me, but I had to log out/in before I saw the group as an option.

This behavior is really silly.  I am an jira administrator.  I am also in a development group that has many more permissions that the "product management" group.  I want to give access to the "product management" group even though I am not a member.  What ends up happening is that I now have to add myself to every group that needs access to this board.  Now instead of being in a group or two that describes my duties, I am in every group that may need access to a particular resource that I have access to through a different group.



I agree! sadly JIRA is full of small surprises like this one!

Jira tries to restrict who can see all group names. The oddness is documented at with 

"Note that you can only share filters with groups/roles of which you are a member." 

Better to share by project anyway
