Group by field label

Hi, on my board, I'd like to "Group By" a filter label. 


How can I achieve this? Also, my "board settings" link is not there. I only see "Manage Rules"

I did reference this article before posting:


Thanks in advance!

It means that you created a next-gen project. The board for this project can not be configured like Jira Software boards.

You would need to create a new board. But still you will not be able to group by labels.

Hi @Mark_Jaundoo,

it seems, you created a next-gen board. Look at this page for documentation:

As far as I know, you can't create a quick- or group-by-filter using a next-gen board.

Is it still not the thing?.. It's been a long time.

Our team would find this feature super valuable, too.

We don't allocate issues to Epics all the time, but will assign a label, as this is more flexible regarding duration of the issues assigned to the label vs a shorter lived Epic.

So is this something that is on the roadmap for next gen and will be added at some point?
