One Product Backlog with multiple SCRUM teams

Does anyone have a suggestion for managing the following:

One product backlog

2 Boards - each for one SCRUM team

How can I have sprints running for each board pulling the items from one central backlog?

Thank you for your assistance!

Hi Landi,
it was mentioned in multiple topics - like https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/One-project-multiple-backlog-multiple-sprints/qaq-p/806493

Quick answer.
Set up a separate scrum board for each team.
Have a filter for each board that filters out issues based on some differentiator:
* e.g. 1 component="Team-X"  / "Team-Y" etc.

* e.g.2 label = "Team-X"  / "Team-Y" etc.

You can have many components per issue, so you can still use components like they should be used :) 
People say that benefit of components over labels here is that sub-tasks created under a story with a component assigned should get the component automatically (so it will stay with the board and its filter)

I've set it up - tried both with teams in labels and teams in components; it works but subtasks inherit neither labels nor components -> from a quick search it seems like you'd need a plugin for that

I've tried to set this up, but from Board-X I can still see the sprint created on Board-Y.
Any thoughts?

Hi Luis,

check if your task have both components.

If a task has both, then it is picked up by both filters (each board); if it is in a specific sprint, then it will show with that sprint as well; 

so the way to do this is to have only one component per task, or share sprints among teams (though you'd have to start and close them together then);

there might be also some other edge cases - but I don't have enough info to support; the one I described is a typical mistake I've noticed;

 

BTW - I've been working with this setup for 6+ months and it works very well; I actually prefer it to the "separate teams = separate projects" approach
