How do I sort the Agile Backlog by Board?

I have 1 Agile project with different boards.

  1. I fill one board with User Stories.
  2. I want to create another board with another topic: After creating a new board all Epics and User Stories of the 1. Board will be shown.

How can I sort the Backlog, so that there will not be shown the Epics and User Stories of the first Board?

Thanks for your help.

Boards just show a filter. If they have a different filter, they will display different issues.

The common way of doing this is using another project. 

Another way of accomplishing your end goal would be to have the boards using mutually-exclusive filters like this: 

Board 1 – Project = Software AND issuetype = Story ORDER BY Rank ASC

Board 2 – Project = Software AND issuetype = Bug ORDER BY Rank ASC


You could also use some way of differentiating the issues by using either a custom field or a specific label. Then specify the issues you want in your board using a filter, as Steven says.

Thank your for your support. It was very helpful!
