Can not edit filters that I own Edited

I have created a bunch of filters for my next-gen projects and dashboards.  When I go to edit them, however, it often only allows me to save as, stating:

"This filter was created by [me]. You can save a copy of this filter but you cannot modify the original."

I am a site admin so I do not think it is a permission issue.  Can someone shed some light?


Edit: I do not want to just "save as" the filter under a new name, I want to edit the current one so my dashboard widgets still pull it.

Hi Erin, one thing to be aware of and maybe you are and this is going down the wrong path....

when you select a filter you will only see "Save as" until such that as you make the change AND click the search (or hit CR). Once you do that you should be able to see Save option.

if that still doesn't resolve it LMK

Hi, Thanks for your response!

I had noticed that with changing the search, but what I wanted to do was change the columns shown.   After playing with it and getting a tester, I realized that probably saves automatically.   I feel silly but at least now the question is here for others to find.

No problem we all had to learn the same thing. 😉


Long shot replying to here 6 months later... but something has changed and I am having the same problem again.  


Now I can edit a filter, click search, and am once again unable to update my filter.  The "save as" never does change to "save", even after searching.


The pop up now looks like this:image.png


Any advice?  I want to update this filter without having to make a new one and go change my dashboards.





Hmmm, can't edit columns either (even though I own this filter...).

Edit: Meant to post this in response to Jack

I am not run into this. Either you truly don’t know in the filter you having to be looking at or possibly a bug. If you’re quite confident that you do and the filter then I would contact Atlassian support to have them investigate. To test if you are in the filter can you click on the details link at the top and edit permissions or subscriptions etc.?

I 100% own the filter!


Out of frustration, I shut everything down and reopened and after doing that, it started to work.  It's almost like it gets "stuck" somehow.
