Create a Scrum board based on projects

If you're setting up Jira for the first time, follow the prompts to create a project. A new board may already be selected for your project by default. You can change which board is associated with your project using by selecting Change to view all options.

If you've already set up Jira, follow these instructions to create a Scrum board using issues from a project.

  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 pops up, choose Create a Scrum board.

  3. Select whether to base your board on a new software project or one or more existing projects (you need the Browse Projects permission for both options).

  4. Follow the prompts to set up your 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.

If you're basing your board on one or more existing projects, this will create a pre-configured board that contains all the issues in your chosen projects. Your board will have an issue filter with the following query:

project = "[YOUR PROJECT]" ORDER BY Rank ASC
