Adding filters to Kanban board

Hi, 

As being brand new to this, I find it very hard to add simple filters, e.g. Milestone 1, Milestone 2, Milestone 3, etc. 

How can I add these filters and apply Milestone numbers to the issues, so it knows what do include? 

KR, 

Simon

Dear @Simon Knudsen,

do following:

  1. goto Administer Project
  2. click on Versions
  3. create for each milestone one version
  4. go back to the Kanban board
  5. configure the board
  6. click on Quick-Filters
  7. add per milestone one filter with this JQL: fixedVersion = "milestone x"
  8. you are done

This is fine, if you didn't use the version for its real purpose.

If you cannot take the version, ask an admin to create a custom field(select list) named "milestone" for you (assigned to one of your screens your project is using), with all your milestone names. The JQL then looks like this: milestone = "milestone x"

So long

Hi Thomas, 

Thanks for your reply. I'm sorry about my the late response. 

What I am looking to do is adding each milestone as a button as a horizontal line at the top (see attached image):

As you can see, right now I just have a drop down menu. 

Can I have buttons next to "Assignee" like "Milestone 1", "Milestone 2" etc., so that the kanban board will only show issues for the selected milestone? Can you confirm if your guide will give me this result?

KR,

Simon

Dear @Simon Knudsen,

sure you can do how you wrote it. But you need one criteria for the quick filter. Which field/custom field will you use for milestone?
