A Rapid View can include issues from one or more projects. You need a Rapid View so that you can view issues on the Rapid Board. You can either use a Rapid View that someone else has created, or create a new Rapid View for yourself.

To create a new Rapid View:

  1. Go to the Rapid Board (click 'Agile' > 'Rapid Board) and select 'Create' from the 'cog' menu at the top-right of the page.
    (info) Alternatively, if you are on the 'Getting Started' page, simply click 'Create a New Rapid View':

  2. Either:
    • To create a Rapid View that is preconfigured for Kanban:
      • Click 'Select Kanban' on the 'Presets' tab (see Screenshot 1 below). You will be prompted to enter the name of your new Rapid View, and to select the project(s) you wish to view.
        (info) This will create a JIRA filter that has the following query:

        or:

    • To create a Rapid View that is preconfigured for Scrum:
      • Click 'Select Scrum' on the 'Presets' tab (see Screenshot 1 below). You will be prompted to enter the name of your new Rapid View, and to select the project(s) you wish to view.
        (info) This will create a JIRA filter that has the following query:

        or:

    • To create a Rapid View that is based on a query of your own choosing:
      (info) Before you can do this, you must have access to at least one saved JIRA filter (either your own filter, or one that someone else has shared with you). If you don't, first create and save a new filter in JIRA (you may want to see the JQL documentation).
      • Click the 'Advanced' tab (see Screenshot 2 below).
      • 'Saved Filter' — Select the JIRA filter to be used by this Rapid View (see some examples below).
        (info) If a colleague has not shared their saved filter with you, that filter will not be available for you to choose in this field.
      • 'Shares' shows which groups or projects roles have access to the currently selected saved filter. Your new Rapid View will be available to all users who have access to your chosen filter.
      • Click the 'Edit Filter' link if you wish to alter the JIRA filter's query. (You will only be able to do this if you are the owner of the JIRA filter. If you are not, then the owner's name will be shown instead of the 'Edit Filter' link.)

Congratulations — you have created a new Rapid View!

Your new Rapid View will be shown. At the top is a link that you may want to send to other people so that they can use your Rapid View.

  • Select all issues for a team (using a Label custom field named 'Team')

  • Only select my bugs for a bugfix team

  • Try fixVersion = earliestUnreleasedVersion(PROJECT KEY) to see all issues in the next Fix Version to be released:
