Create a board based on filters

Jira Software allows you to create a company-managed board that displays issues from multiple projects. Before you begin, you must have access to at least one saved issue filter — either your own filter, or one that someone else has shared with you. If you don't, you need to create and save a new issue filter first. Learn more about creating a filter using JQL.

However, team-managed project issues won't appear in a company-managed board. You can still use a JQL filter that includes team-managed projects, but you won't see or be able to transition those issues from your company-managed board. Learn more about the difference between company-managed and team-managed projects.

To create a board from an existing filter:

  1. From the global navigation at the top of the page, select the search field (or press /) and select Go to all: Boards. Then select Create board in the upper right of the screen.

  2. In the modal that appears, choose to either Create a Scrum board or Create a Kanban board, then choose Board from an existing Saved Filter.

  3. Give your board a name, and choose which filter you want to use. This new board will be available to all users who have access to your chosen filter.

  4. When you’re ready, select Create board.

Your new board is now ready to use! At the top is a link that you may want to send to other people so that they can use it too.
