Hello @Shambhavi Singh 

Welcome to the community.

Are these three projects all Company Managed projects? Are any of them Team Managed projects?

You mention that you want to merge the 3 projects into one Scrum board, but you also mention that two of the projects are using Kanban.

A Scrum board will show only Active Sprints and the issues assigned to those sprints in the Board view. This will not be effective for showing the two projects that are using Kanban rather than Scrum. The issues from those projects would not be displayed in the Board view of a Scrum board because they would not be assigned to Sprints.

You will need to create a Kanban board, not a Scrum board, to effectively show the issues of all the projects in the Board view of the new board.

The first step is to create a Saved Filter that includes the criteria you want to use to select the issues.

The next step is to create a new board based on that saved filter. You can do that by 

1. Clicking in the Quick Search field in the upper right corner near the Help icon.

2. Clicking the Boards button that appears at the bottom of the pop-up

3. Clicking the Create Board button that shows in the next screen.

That starts the wizard to walk you through creating the board. One step will ask you if you want to create the board from an Existing Project or an Existing Saved Filter. You would choose the latter option and then select the Saved Filter you created earlier.

You can create a new board based upon a filter that incorporates the three different projects. For example the filter below illustrates the concept.

project in (A, B, C) and xxxxx

where xxxxx is used to further quantify which issues from Projects A, B and C should be illustrated on your board.
