How can I save a filter-specific column configuration?


I struggle with saving a particular column selection and order for different filters that I created.

I followed the guidelines given here: 

Save your search as a filter | Jira Software Cloud | Atlassian Support --> "Define a filter-specific column order"

...but don't receive the described result. As soon as I change the columns in my saved filter it transfers the column configuration to all other filters too and the other way round: when I go back and reset the columns it is then also reset in my saved filter...

Can someone help me out here?

Big thanks! Richard

When you open a filter and then elect to modify the columns, are you making sure to select the Filter tab in the column selection pop-up?

Hi Trudy,

That was exactly what I didn't do 🤦‍♂️ - Thanks for your quick help! Working fine now...

Hello! I have this problem but i can save the filtered column set but I spent ages reordering them in the way I need (even adding them in the correct order) and then when I added a new column it reset the column order entirely! This is SO frustrating. How do I save the column order within a filter?

I found this - does it fix your issue?
