Display only stories in the board.


We are working with a Scrum in Jira, in the board we want to see the tasks only if we entered or access the Stories. We don't want to see the tasks in the board all the time.

Is there any filter or configuration that allows this kind of behavior?

Hi Ana - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

If you want the stories and the tasks to appear on the board sometimes, but sometimes you want to hide the tasks, then you can create a Quick Filter for the board. 

Go to Board Settings > Quick Filters and create a quick filter that looks like:

issuetype != Task

Thanks a lot for the answer! It works and we can see only the Stories in the board.
