Business project - board filters


I have a Business project which has a costume field in it called "Domain" 

I would like to know how to add it as a filter to the board of the project. 

(I can now only add filters of - Assignee, Issue Type, Labels, Priority)

Hi @Dana_Harel

Have tried creating a personal board and creating a quick filter for the specific custom field? 

Is the Work Management project a Team-based project or a company-based project?

Hi Dana,

You cannot modify the built-in board for JWM projects. However, you could create a second board as a Jira Software board and then you could modify that. Here is more information.

You will need to create a filter for the JWM project, something like Project = ABC ORDER by Rank ASC where ABC is the project key for your JWM project. Be sure to save the filter and share it. Or you can use an existing filter if one exists with the same issues in it.

Go to your list of boards and click on Create board

Choose either Kanban or Scrum

Choose create based on an existing Filter.

Then attach it to the new filter you just created.

For the Location field, you will not be able to use a Team-managed, Business, or JSM Project - only Classic Software projects. Or you can link to your profile - probably best in this case. But this will not keep the new board from working - it really only cares about the project(s) in the filter.

Then you are all set. You can modify the board as you need to.

One side note - you will not be able to click on the Board option as normal for the project as that will take you to the built-in board. You will need add a shortcut on the left side menu and include a link to the new board.
