What type of board is it, what is the board filter, and what are the column-status mappings?

Its a Scrum Board using Agile Simplified Workflow with Columns-Status mapping of To-Do, In-Progress and Done.

Filter used is just on Project a Single Project Name.


The Story has an Epic Link which is in To-Do Status but its not a part of the present Sprint. Is it some where responsible?

The Epic link doesn't matter (although the Epic won't appear because a Scrum board only shows things in the current sprint).

Could you check:

  • the exact board filter (is it really just "project = X order by rank asc"?)
  • the resolution and status of one of the issues that has gone to "done" and vanished?
  • the sprint field for the issue that has goine into "done"
  • that your board has no quick-filters that might be hiding it, or swimlanes that might be moving it to somewhere you can't get to it

The Board Filter is just project = "XXX" ORDER BY Rank ASC

I have attached the screenshot of how my Status and Columns are mapped.

The Story has been moved to Done at issue Level but at board level its is still showing under Do-To and cannot be moved.

There are no Quick Filters Configured.

The Swimlane are based on Story


Can please I have an update on this if any?

I was sure I responded to this yesterday.

Could we:

1) Try reindexing project XXX

2) If that does not fix it, a screenshot of the top of the issue screen (the header and system field area)

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
