Hi Shelli,

you tried to change de filter of your board? You can make this change in the config tab in your Board.


I was typing my answer the same time you were...

Like Valentino_Holderegger likes this

1. Go to your Agile Board

2. Click Extras->Configure

3. Click "Edit Filter"

4. Add your project

5. Click "Save"

6. Then the filter appears; change this filter (add project and so on)

7. Save the filter

8. Ready!

Hi Shelli, did it help you? Please mark your question as answered :-)

Yeh theres a difference here - its easy to add the project to the filter query, but the actual Edit filter with the SHARES Project: project name doesn't seem possible or I can't find how, editing just lets you change who it's shared with not the projects. I think thats the key here. Anyone know how to do it?

Actually I've figured it out. In teh Add Shares: Everyone select the dropdown Project and select the project and Add.

Two ways to access this go to and then select 'Board > Configure' In the General tab

Or through the Board wher eyou have the options to adjust filter params theres a Details label you can click.

Basically want to find the area where you have options to: Edit Filter Shares and Edit Filter Query.


See this doc:

Found it!

Click on the name of the "Saved Filter" for the board. Then, there's a drop down box at the top with a prefix of "Project:". Click that and then you can choose other projects to add.

Not very intuitive, but doable.

Nice, this is the correct way :).

Congrats Shelli.


I actually have the same problem - I update my filter to add a "AND project=" statement. Now the filter shows the issues for the other project, but doesn't show it on the Scrum board.

I have the same issue, I added the second prjoect to Shares but it doesn't show in the board, I tried editing the filter but I keep getting nothing back or a syntax error. Is this not correct:

project = test and project = test1 ORDER BY Rank ASC
