No matter your level of familiarity with Jira, being able to generate and distribute a Jira filter is a valuable resource in organizing and presenting tasks. These filters enable you to focus on only the pertinent issues related to your tasks or project. By sharing these filters with your team, you can improve teamwork and promote openness. In this article, we will provide a step-by-step walkthrough on how to share your Jira filter publicly.

Step 1: Creating a Filter

First, we need to create a filter. If you already have one, feel free to skip this step. To create a filter, go to the ‘Issues’ tab at the top of your Jira dashboard and select ‘Search for Issues’. You will then be able to specify your filter criteria, such as project, issue type, assignee, and more. Once you’ve set your criteria, click on ‘Save As’ to save the filter.

Step 2: Navigating to Manage Filters

Once you have a filter, you need to navigate to the ‘Manage Filters’ section. Follow these steps:

  1. Click on ‘Issues’ at the top of your Jira dashboard.
  2. From the dropdown menu, select ‘Manage Filters’.

Step 3: Making Your Filter Public

Now, it’s time to make your filter public. You will see a list of your filters. Next to each filter, there are ‘Edit’ and ‘Share’ options. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Click on ‘Edit’ next to the filter you want to make public.
  2. You will see a field labelled ‘Share with’. Click on it and select ‘Public’.
  3. Click ‘Save’.


Only share filters publicly that you’re sure won’t expose sensitive data. Always review the contents of a filter before sharing.


And that’s it! You now know how to make a Jira filter public. It’s a simple process, but a powerful one that can help improve transparency and collaboration in your projects. So go ahead, create and share away!
