Hide Sprints from SCRUM Board

We have two development teams that work on two products but share Issues from a common project. So we have three JIRA projects (something like projA, projB and sharedComponent).

The board filters then look like:

project = projA OR project = sharedComponent

Now, both boards show the other project's Sprints - as can be expected, since issues from sharedComponent would be visible in both boards. This is not always desirable.

* Is it possible to hide the display of the other's project sprints from the planning board?

BTW, I tried putting the project name in the sprint and filtering like 'project = projA OR (project = sharedComponent AND NOT Sprint ~ "projB"), but the ~-operator does not work for the sprint field.

We suffer the same inconvenience...

There are some additional JQL functions for open sprints which may help: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Advanced+Searching+Functions#AdvancedSearchingFunctions-openSprints()

Anything else on this? We're having the same problem.

I don't see anything in the additional JQL queries that would help, but would love to know if you have something that would work.

Any solutions here?

Hi @Philip Hansen - did you ever solve this? I've got exactly the same issue right now!

Did you solve this? I want to have two Boards for two separate teams. And I want only their personal Sprints to show at their boards... Items are easy to hide with filters, but how to hide boards???

The way we solved this is by using labels.

We maintain a separate backlog for the shared component. During sprint planning or whenever it becomes clear which team will work on a story, we add a label to it.

The filter query for project A then looks similar to this:

project = projA OR (project = sharedComponent AND labels = PROJA) ORDER BY Rank ASC

(btw the check "labels = PROJA" also works when multiple labels are present)
