Backlog filters based on labels

I have created a board and the quick filter works like a charm

How do I add them to the back log so that I can create an active sprint out of it.


The backlog filter which appears cannot be edited and I am having a hard time. I just need 46 issues to be present in the backlog so that sprint can be created from it.


Any pointers

I did this in "Company Managed Mode"

a. Running Several Boards for a Single Project.
- Each board is for a team so as a PM, I want to keep their backlogs neat for each team
i.e. "App Board" "Hardware Board"

b. Create components for each board.
"App Component", "Hardware Component"

c. For each "issue in backlog", you assign the component as per the board.
i.e. an app related issue -> will have App component -> to appear in backlog of App board only.


Step - 1: I saved the filter I wanted
Eg: "Backlog for App board by using App Component"

Step - 2: Create new board
2.1 Chose 3rd option (Board from an existing Saved Filter)
2.2 Select the filter you've saved earlier.

This worked for me.

Hi @Mouly Swaminathan -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I am confused by what you are asking...Perhaps you could clarify a bit.

From what you have described, I think:

  • You have a company-managed scrum board, and you have created a quick filter
  • Your quick filters should be available on both the board and the backlog
  • If you want to select backlog items with the quick filter and then add them to a sprint you can...
    • navigate to the backlog
    • select the quick filter
    • select the issues shown: select the first and shift-select the last to grab them all
    • right-click to add to your sprint

Best regards,

Hi @Mouly Swaminathan,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

Quick filters let you filter out a subset of the collection of issues that the board sees, and are only available on Active sprint or if you have a Kanban board. In order to edit the filter that the board has you need to go to Board settings and change the filter from there. Please note that it is only the owner of the filter that can change it. 

Sadly it has been like this for years and it's absolutely painful to work with. Instead of fixing that and adding quality of life. Atlassian implements annoying features like link previews which hide some important things. I hope we can migrate off this platform soon.

Hi @Mikael Sandberg ,


If I understood correctly quick filter are not available for backlog. How do I segregate them into different buckets to pick them in active sprint?
