Manage Other Users' Shared Filters and Dashboards
JIRA administrators have the ability to change the ownership of or delete other user's shared filters and dashboards. A shared filter or dashboard is a filter/dashboard created (and hence, owned) by a user, which the user has then shared with others.
Since JIRA only allows the editing or modification of shared filters/dashboards by their owners, this new JIRA feature is especially helpful in situations where a user has left an organisation, but the shared filters or dashboards they created continue to be used by others within the organisation.
Only users with the Create Shared Objects global permission can share their filters and dashboards with other JIRA users.
- The 'Advanced Settings' page of JIRA's Administration area now has improved validation (JRA-24974).
- GreenHopper 5.7.1 now bundled with JIRA 4.4.1.
- When configuring JIRA to connect to a MySQL database via the JIRA setup wizard or JIRA Configuration Tool, the
sessionVariables=storage_engine=InnoDBproperty is now specified by default in the database URL and no longer needs to be added manually (JRA-24857).
- Improvements to JIRA's issue importers.
