I'm trying to figure out what the quickest way is to add a new project to an existing Scrum Rapid Board?
At the moment, the only way I seem to be able to do it is to:
Have I missed something? Is there an easier way?
We do many quick turnaround projects, typically ranging from 1-4 weeks. And we may have as many as 5 projects concurrently. So we do create quite a few JIRA/GH projects. Saving some time on the setup of each would be great.
In terms of usability though, it doesn't need to be so complicated to add a project to a Rapid Board. When you create a new Rapid Board, you get a nice dialog which lets you select from existing projects. Being able to add new projects to an existing Rapid Board should likewise be easy.
Yeah that makes sense.
But again, if your requirement is to have all projects included, then the filter that you used for the Rapidboard, you can just leave out this project filtering so that all new Projects that are created are also automatically considered in the filter.
And if the requirement is to specifically select the projects, then bookmark the edit filter URL of your filter used in the Rapid board. This will be your easiest option.
The project names asked during the new board creation is actually for determining the filter sharing options. A new board always creates a new filter which you can always tune directly to suite your requirements.
This is a problem if you are trying to track multiple projects in one rapid board. I am tracking 17 projects in a rapid board now. JQL box does not accept more than 255 characters. When I try to add 18th project, it just can't accept it. I am the owner of the board. I can't even edit "Filter query" under "filter" tab. I can only go to "Quick Filters" tab and add new filter provided the JQL is less than 255 characters.
We have lots of small projects. We have boards for groups of these small projects. I also have a global board for entire web team. That's where I am stuck with 255 character limit. Any ideas to overcome this issue? Thanks.
Thanks Tom. I was using long ones (project names) in JQL. I changed the short keys. I am not hitting the limit for now. That's good. So, I can have additional filter with all projects I need. However, I am still not able to change filter query under "Filter" tab although I am the owner of the board. There should be a way where we can easily add/remove projects from a board.
