Display only subset of versions in JIRA Agile Scrum board planning tab?

Howdy all! I'm looking for a way to limit the version "drop zones" displayed in the planning tab of the Agile Scrum boards? So that only a certain subset of all the project's versions will appear?

I know of course we can filter out issues, but I'm trying to limit the version "drop zones" that are visible in that view.

You can do this by archiving the fixversion in the project admin section. I know this probably isn't what you were looking for, but that would limit the view of version they would see in the agile planning board.

They can then be 'unarchived' whenever you do want them to show up there and have issues assigned to them again.

Issues that are assigned to that fix version before it's archived will stay assigned to that version, but any new issues will only be able to be assigned to unarchived versions.

This does require some more manual intervention, but totally possible to do it this way.

in addition to this, you can add some Quick Filters to control which issues you get on the board.

fixVersion >= latestReleasedVersion()

Hi Justin, I see that there is a request to something similar to what you're trying to achieve. However it's closed due to not enough information to develop this improvement.

I would suggest that you post your comments there explaing how you would like this functionally and our developers may reconsider implement this change.


This seems best-handled using a JQL query that specifically excludes/includes certain versions in the Agile board. This would achieve exactly the outcome you're seeking.

The alternative is to wait for a product enhancement from Atlassian, but I suspect because of the relative ease of the proposed solution that the aforementioned product enhancement won't be prioritized or available any time soon.
