Quick filters let you further filter the collection of issues appearing on a Scrum or Kanban board. Use quick filters to switch between different issue types (e.g. show only bugs), or to show team-specific views of a common backlog.
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 to configure its quick filters.
About the default quick filters
By default, a board contains two quick filters, called 'Only My Issues' and 'Recently Updated':
Default quick filter
Only My Issues
Displays issues assigned to the person who is currently viewing this board.
Displays issues that have been updated in the last 24 hours.
Manage quick filters
You can create additional quick filters or edit existing quick filters. Any additional quick filters that you create appear in the Quick filters dropdown menu. To display quick filters as buttons, switch on Show quick filters in the dropdown menu.
Go to your board, then select more () > Board settings. (NOTE: This requires admin permissions.)
Select the Quick Filters tab.
Edit the quick filters, as described in the following table.
Add a new quick filter
In the blue area, type the Name, JQL, and a Description (optional), then select Add.
Change the name of a quick filter
Click in the Name area of the quick filter, modify the existing name, then select Update.
Change the JQL of a quick filter
