Is it possible to modify the query for the default Board

We have a single project consisting of Tasks which have a workflow of:

To Do -> In Progress -> Done

In the default "Board" view:




The "Done" column is quickly getting clogged up with old issues - i think this is in part because we're not using Versioning things never get transitioned off of the "Done" column.

There are other threads that indicate this should be something that is configurable - but these instructions are not valid for the current version of JIRA:

Does anyone have a fix for this on the newest JIRA?

Hi @tlancaster  - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

For Jira Work Management projects (aka Jira Core or Business projects), it is not possible to modify the board filter (query). 

It is on the JWM team's backlog to provide a way to hide Done tickets on the board like you can in the List view, but they aren't there yet. I don't know of the timeframe when they hope to get the feature added at this time. 

It might be helpful if you let them know you need that at:


Thanks for confirming my suspicions that this is not currently possible. It's frustrating because when searching for how to do it there are many articles stating how to do it for the old interface.

I'll e-mail them as per your recommendation.



To be clear, the core/business boards are not Kanban boards, they're just boards.

Things should drop out of the done column after 14 days of no updates on them (this number is not yet configurable, but as John says, it's on the list)

On a Kanban board (Jira Software), you can configure the filter that drops things off the done column.  The default filter is "has a version set", but you can change it to anything you want (like "unchanged for 7 days", or "custom field checkbox for deployed" or whatever else you like)
