I am trying to create a filter that will show me items that are in the backlog, but am having difficulty. I hope that someone can help point me in the right direction, and that it is not an issue of JIRA lacking another feature that I need!
My current filter looks like this:
status != Done AND (Sprint not in (openSprints(), futureSprints()) OR Sprint is not EMPTY) ORDER BY createdDate ASC
If I change it to say only
Sprint not in (openSprints(), futureSprints()
then I get results that are not in the current sprint - exactly what I need. The only problem is that it excludes items that have previously been assigned to a sprint, but were never completed. If I change it to say only
Sprint is not EMPTY
then I get results that have been previously assigned to a sprint - again, exactly what I need! The only problem is that it excludes items that have never been assigned to a sprint.
When I try to combine the two inside of a parenthesis grouping, I get most of what I need - but for some reason, it is including the items that are in my current (active) sprint.
I feel like this would all be solved by having Atlassian implement a simple "currentSprint()" operator, so that I could say
Sprint not in currentSprint()
Can anyone help me out - or am I out of luck?
Hi Boris, thanks for responding! This definitely gets me much closer to where I need to be. There are a few items that I'd still like to get rid of though; I see issues carried over from our last sprint (closed) that have been assigned to the current sprint. I really appreciate you taking the time to reply!
Yes. Essentially, I want to...
It seems like the query above is filtering out items that have never been assigned to a previous sprint (i.e. sprint is EMPTY), but I actually need them to be included!
Thanks again for taking the time to respond!
Here's a query similar to the one above with some explanation:
sprint IS EMPTY OR sprint IN closedSprints() AND sprint NOT IN (openSprints(), futureSprints()) AND status != Done
sprint IS EMPTY OR sprint IN closedSprints()
sprint NOT IN (openSprints(), futureSprints()) AND status != Done
I'm in the same boat. It's absurd that I can't see what's in my backlog at a glance. Right now I'm using this:
project = NAME and sprint IS EMPTY and status = open OR project = NAME and sprint IN closedSprints() AND sprint NOT IN (openSprints(), futureSprints()) AND status = Open
Hey @Adam Tiner
I ran into this same issue and its been a while since you asked this question. I am posting this answer in case anyone else runs into this.
In order to target issues that are in your backlog but not within a future sprint, open sprint, or that was in a closed sprint but was unresolved use this query
Sprint in futureSprints() or Sprint is EMPTY or (Sprint in closedSprints() AND resolution = Unresolved and Sprint not in openSprints())
Now you will need to make sure to filter out all issues that do not have a status of Done or are unresolved
status != Done
resolution = Unresolved
So the full query would look like this
Sprint in futureSprints() or Sprint is EMPTY or (Sprint in closedSprints() AND resolution = Unresolved and Sprint not in openSprints()) and issuetype in (your issue types here) and resolution = Unresolved
I hope there is an easier way of doing this but the only solution I could come up with. I hope this helps someone.
