How to customize issue filter on backlog of next-gen project Edited

I dont see this anymore.. how do I do this?

2 answers

Project Settings > Issue Types > Click on the issue type 

Drag and drop fields to customize layout 

I am looking at the backlog and I could add my own custom filter before. I can't do this anymore. The title to my question is not correct, I mean to ask how to add a custom filter in the backlog view.

Ah...its not quite intuitive but according to the documentation as Issue populate the board you use the quick filter and Group by to display issues you are looking for

Choose the best view for your board

  1. Assignee filter: Display only issues containing a search term, or assigned to a specific person, and hide the rest.
  2. Other filters: Display only issues that contain specific labels or epics, and hide the rest.
  3. Group by: List issues under swimlanes based on the chosen category. 

Shawn - As Jack mentioned it looks like I cant actually change to put in a quick filter and can only filter by Epic. This looks like a function they took away in next-gen.

What exactly do you mean by “customize issue view”? What is your end goal?

I am trying to just see issues that are not closed already in my backlog view. I can't do this and can only filter by assignee right now.

Though the link that @Shawn Masters provided would suggest otherwise I have not seen any introduction of being able to customize the quick filter for Next-gen projects. All I see are filte by Epic. Of course things change regularly for cloud and maybe some instances are more current than mine. You can also click on a specific user avatar.

Filtering out the closed issues is a pretty basic requirement. Has anyone managed to do this??

I'd love to be able to filter Unassigned tickets so I can see what work needs to be divided and assigned. Currently I have no clue how this can be done on the BackLog view.
