Usage and admin help
Your board's filter is an issue filter (a JQL query) that specifies which issues are included on your board. For example, your board may include issues from multiple projects, or from only one project, or from a particular component of a project.
Before you begin
To configure the board and any of its settings, you must be either:
a project administrator for the location of the board
a board administrator for the board itself
See Permissions overview for more information.
Choosing a different filter for your board
Click Projects and select the relevant project.
Click the more icon () at the top right > Board settings.
Halfway down the page, hover over the name of the filter displayed in the Saved Filter field > a pencil iconwill appear. Click it.
Choose a different filter for your board. Press the Enter key when finished.
Editing a board's filter
Click Projects then select the relevant project
Select more () > Board settings
In the General tab:
To change the filter's JQL query, click Edit Filter Query
To change the filter's name, description, or shares, click Edit Filter Shares
(Kanban only) Adding a sub-filter
If you are using a Kanban board, you can add a sub-filter that refines the issues returned by your board's filter. The sub-filter enables the Kanban board to show different data to the Reports.
The default sub-filter is:
This will result in issues released using the 'Release' button no longer appearing in the Active sprints (although the reports in Reports will continue to show them).
To add a sub-filter to your board:
Go to your board, then select more (•••) > Board settings.
Edit the Kanban board sub-filter field and enter a JQL query. For information on JQL syntax, see JQL.
(Kanban only) Hiding completed issues
To improve your board's performance, all issues in the Done column which weren't updated within the last 2 weeks are hidden. You can change this time period, or choose to always show all issues.
To hide completed issues:
Go to your board, then select more () > Board settings.
In the Hide completed issues older than field, select the retention period. Issues that weren't updated within this period will be hidden.
