Release filter on kanban board doesn't work

Using the kanban board to get a view of work progress, I want to be able to filter it so that I can look exclusively at the current sprint/release but I can't get the release drop down to work.

Whenever I select a release I get the following error:

" This version has issues with potential problems. We recommend using the Release Hub instead. "

I can't find any information about what these 'potential problems' are, and I can't customize the release hub to suit our needs.

I'm getting around this by making the filter for my kanban only show issues in my current release, but it means I have to update the filter at the start of each sprint to keep the team's view up to date.

Hi @Samantha Johnston 

Have you considered using quick filters for your release information?  You may then enable/disable them as needed on the board or backlog views.

We found the following two quick filters helpful...

Next release: fixVersion = earliestUnreleasedVersion()

All later releases: fixVersion != earliestUnreleasedVersion() AND fixVersion in unreleasedVersions()

Best regards,


I wasn't aware of the earliestUnreleaseVersion() possibility - that's a great idea, thank you!

Is this board associated with a single project? I’m wondering about permissions or trying to release across multiple projects and a conflict with release version. Just guessing at this point. More details might help e.g.

  • board filter
  • is this a new board and problem or old board and new problem- has it ever worked

thanks so much for your reply :)

the board is within the one project, same project that the release I'm trying to filter down to lives in.

Filter query I'm using currently is: 

project = AUTO AND fixVersion = AUTO-2021-03-11 ORDER BY priority DESC, updated DESC

this was previously just:

project = AUTO ORDER BY priority DESC, updated DESC

(i've added the fixversion as a workaround for this filtering issue).

It's also a new board, release filtering has never worked for me.

Hi All, We’ve heard you when you said that it takes too long to make changes to multiple issues - given that you’ll have to open them one by one to make changes. With this release, we are addressin...
