Configuring Filters

Your board's filter is a JIRA 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. Only the administrator of a board (or a person with the 'JIRA Administrators' global permission) can configure a board's filter.

Choosing a different Filter for your Board

To choose which filter is associated with your board:

  1. Navigate to the desired board, then click Board > Configure.
  2. Click the name of the filter displayed in the Saved Filter field. A pencil icon will appear when you hover over it.
  3. Choose a different filter for your board. Press the Enter key when finished.

Editing a Board's Filter

To edit the filter which is currently associated with your board:

  1. Navigate to the desired board, then click Board > Configure.
  2. In the General tab:
    • To change the filter's JQL query, click Edit Filter Query. For more details, see the JIRA documentation on JQL.
    • To change the filter's name, description, or shares, click Edit Filter Shares. For more details, see the JIRA documentation on issue filters.

Adding a Sub-Filter for Kanban boards

A sub-filter refines the issues returned by your board's filter on Kanban boards. The sub-filter applies to the 'Kanban board' screen of the Kanban board only (i.e. not Reports). The sub-filter enables the Reports to show different data to Kanban board.

The default sub-filter is:

fixVersion in unreleasedVersions() OR fixVersion is EMPTY

... this will result in issues released using the 'Release' button no longer appearing on the Kanban board screen (although the Reports will continue to show them).

To add a sub-filter to your board:

  1. Navigate to the desired board, then click Board > Configure.
  2. Hover over the words Add Sub-Filter and click the pencil icon that appears. Enter a JQL query. For more details, see the JIRA documentation on JQL.
