Our new project manager is interested in creating a Kanban board to manage multiple projects within new project spaces in Jira. She wants to organize all projects on a single Kanban board so the product management team can easily track their progress.
I experimented with the project management template and successfully created a Kanban board that displays all the epics from different projects. However, I'm unsure how to filter the board to display only the projects themselves, without the epics.
Is this possible in Jira?
Hello @Celina Kim , I guess understood you. You need use a Jira software project (company managed) to view issues from different Jira projects. After you create this project, go to the board configuration and edit the filter query to return the issues from another projects. For example:
- Project A - App development
- Project B - Web development
- Project C - Project management
The filter query in the Project C board would be "project in ("Project A", "Project B") and issuetype = Epic ORDER BY Rank ASC"
Hello @Celina Kim
There may be some confusion over terminology.
In Jira there is an entity called a Project. A Project is a container for the issues/work items that are tracked in Jira.
Jira is not designed to track its own Project entities through a lifecycle. Projects don't have Status and Date information associated with them.
Boards are intended to display an item that moves through a lifecycle that is tracked within Jira.
Boards in Jira display issues, not Jira Projects.
You can create a Filter that will select issues from specified Jira Projects, but there is no meaningful information to display about the Projects.
What are you trying to accomplish by display "projects" in a board?
Hi Celina Kim,
As per the discussion with Claspill, we wanted to clarify the Jira board filter query for your
projects. To ensure that only relevant issues are displayed, please use the following query:
project in ("Project A", "Project B") AND issuetype = Epic
By using this query, you can focus on the specific issues related to your projects without the
need for an epic display.
