No text search for scrum board?


As we transfered from the server hosted version to the jira cloud the search field for quick filtering tasks within a scrumboard/active sprint disappeared.

Before it was possible to through a search field quick filter by entering text so that issues/tasks etc. were filtered out within the active sprint. The new search field in the top right of the screen searches not just the current project but all projects.

How do I get it back?

Hello Peter,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

Just to make sure that we are on the same page, I would like to confirm if the search bar that you mentioned is the one below:

If so, did you tested creating a brand new project?

Is this issue happening only on migrated projects?

If possible, send us a screenshot of how your board/backlog looks like (just make sure to hide private information).



As you can see below, my scrumboard is missing that search bar. My project got migrated from a hosted jira version to the cloud I do not now if it only regards for migrated projects.


Thank you for the screenshot, Peter.

Your site looks different than mine. Are you using an add-on or browser extensions?

I tested creating a new project on a site with the new top navigation bar and the menus and board look different.

Would it be possible to create a new project just to test if it will look the same as this one that got migrated?

If you are using add-ons or extensions to change Jira's look, can you please disable it in order to test?
