Creating a Scrum Master Board from other boards?


I learned that the best way to configure my work is by creating different boards for each team / department. Now I need to create an overview board / Scrum master board .

The  walkthroughs I have seen online are mainly on "how to create a scrum master board from different projects"  is an overview  board showing different  projects and have swimmlanes. 

My question is  how do I create that type of board but instead of displaying different projects, I display different boards from the same project?  ( and is this possible considering that each board has different amount of columns and names`? could I sort them out as  to do / in progress/ done on the  scrum master /overview board?)

I understand  that  a board is basically a filter of issues, so could this be done on with a certain Jira query? or labels?


P.S I use  the term "scrum master", but i am not using scrum boards ( just kanbans)  but i  mean it in a way that the scrum master normally needs a universal view of all teams

Thank you

Hello @Elsa Navarro 

Filters cannot be configured to select issues based on the board they are included in because issues can be included in multiple boards.

To create a board that encompasses the information in the boards for teams you need to create a filter that encompasses all the filters of the team boards.

If your team boards are selecting the issues from just one project, then you can use a simple filter to get all the issues from that one project:

project = <yourProject>

A board can have only one configuration for its status/column mappings, so you will not be able to have different columns display in that one board for each of the referenced boards.

If you want to somehow split that board to show the issues grouped by the team boards you could set the Swimlanes to the Queries option and then create a swimlane for each board, where the swimlane query is the filter for the board.
