How can I hide issues older than 2 weeks on a next gen board?

How can I hide done issues that are older than 2 weeks on my next gen board?  What would these issues look like in the backlog?

and I expect eventually you will be able to configure the shelf-life of Done issues so they clear automatically.

Hi @Gavin Ott

based on the article John linked above the automatic clearing after 14 days is reported to be still in place - I just wanted this to add as a different user here in Community some days before was shocked where the issues in Done column went after that time span and we figured out this was this automatism.

So do we understand you correctly this is not working for your next-gen project?

Basically current state is that the column will be cleared after 14 days - or - per manual clearing as per the article.

How does automatic clearing work alongside manual clearing?

The 14-day automatic clearing rule is based on when you resolve an issue, which is currently tied to the DONE column. Manual clearing allows you to clear DONE issues at any time you prefer.

The configuration of the automatic clearing rule is dependent on board settings being shipped first. You can track the progress of board settings here.

In the interim, manual clearing should resolve most of the pain you’ve experienced with completed work.

Is this what you meant?

Hi Daniel,

My team actually just got Jira and have had it less than 2 weeks so I didn't know about / haven't experienced an automatic clearing after 2 weeks, I was just anticipating the issue of a cluttered Done column.  I assume it works just fine.  Thank you!
