Link team boards to a program board so issues move together



I am wondering if this workflow is possible:


- I want to have a program level board where all the teams on the program appear with their issues and the current status of each.

- Each team will have their own board with the same columns as the program board.

- When issues on their board move along from to-do, in progress, test, etc. they will also change on the program board automatically.


Reasons for this:

A. for accurate metrics in Jira for each team so we don't have to hunt down each team's board nor have all the teams share one board.

B. Maintain a high level of clarity on our program.

C. Avoid having to manually duplicate issues and manually move them after issues on team's boards change status.

Hi @jnijjar - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Yes, this is possible. Simply create a new filter for the program board that includes all of the projects that you want. The filter would look something like: Project in ("ABC", "DEF", "123", etc.)

I hope that helps!

Thank you for the quick response.


I am running Jira cloud and made a project. However, on the board page, when I click the "more" option (...) I only see "Manage Rules" and there appears to be now way to add this filter you are talking about. Am I missing something here?


The project is a next-gen project.
