Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Boards are not a container of issues - you can't move an issue from one board to another.  (Projects are the containers for issues).

A board is a view of a selection of issues.  If you want an issue (Epic and User stories are types of issues) to appear on a board, change the filter for the board so that it includes the issues you want to see.

Hi @t_sudhirkumar  Welcome to Atlassian Community!

It's not possible to move issue between boards. Board is simply showing the issues based on the JQL filter added in Board Configuration.

Only solution is that create a new filter which contain EPIC,Story etc and map that filter with Board B from Board Configuration, you will see required issues on Board B. 

Modify Board A, Filter query so that same issues not visible on both boards. 

For More Information, Kindly check documentation :-

Hi @Vikrant Yadav and @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ 

Thank you for the responses. Appreciate your help!

I have tried creating same filters on Board B. However, I'm not seeing that filters results in Board'B'. Am i missing something here?

Thank you in advance!

Depends on what type of board it is and how you have configured it.

The board filter tells the board what issues to work with, but boards can be configured to show different sub-sets of the issues depending on all sorts of things. 

For example,

  • a Scrum board will only show you the active sprint, but a Kanban board can be persuaded to show you everything the filter returns.
  • Even with a filter like "project = X", boards won't show you issues they consider "done"
  • Your board columns may not be mapped the way you expect.
  • And so on.

The backlog is actually a better thing to look at than the board - it'll show you all the outstanding stuff from your filter, as long as the columns are configured right.

@t_sudhirkumar  ++ For getting same board configuration.. create a copy of Board A and only update the filter query.
