I have a project that I created a scrum board for. However I am noticing that the work is probably more suited to Kanban. Can I create a Kanban board for the same project and just use that instead?
I have set up 11 boards all referencing a single project - 10 are SCRUM boards and one is a KANBAN board. All you have to do is create a new board and select the project - the same way that you did when creating the original board. The filter of each board is different and references different issues within the same project based on custom fields, etc.
What I'm investigating now is whether it is possible to have issues appear on two boards at once - one KANBAN and then once it reaches a certain phase it should then also appear on a SCRUM board.
Hi, sorry for the delay in responding! The filter queries of each board control what issues are displayed, so it is definitely possible to have multiple boards referencing the same set of issues. For example, I've just created two boards now: * Both reference the same project. * Kanban board I've left with the default filter query - eg "project = LHGSD ORDER BY Rank ASC" * Scrum board I've amended the default filter query by adding that it should only display issues in a certain status - eg "project = LHGSD AND issuetype = Support AND status = "In Development" ORDER BY Rank ASC" * Now both boards reference the same project, with the Kanban board showing all issues, and the Scrum board only showing issues in the In Development status.

And then you just need to make sure that you configure the workflow in a way that allows transitioning of issues to the statuses that you need, and that your board columns are configured to display the issues as you need to see them (this is mainly for the Kanban board).
Thank you Cheryl! The layout we ended up for now is 2 projects, one has Scrum board, another has Kanban with modified default filter to show issues from first Scrum based project. Each project has own components, versions and so on what might be a good or bad solution depending on what you need. Also it requires to "harmonize" statuses as well, e.g. "done" on one board is also "done" in another.
I know that this is a post from 4 years ago, but, how did you manage to get 2 boards to share a backlog?
I want to have a Kanban board for everything in my Backlog (so that we can write stories, groom, and size) - all that while issues are still in the backlog, and then once all that is finished - IF they get picked for a sprint - to show them on the "Current Sprint" board.
But as soon as I create a Kanban board, it gets its own backlog - same with the Scrum board. So I end up with 2 backlogs under the same project?
@Anna Pahlevanyan I am in the process of creating a kanban board to compliment my already existing scrum board. I want to use the kanabn board to groom the backlog as you described and map through the workflow to the scrum board once chosen for a sprint. My only question is how do I have my kanban board share the same backlog as my scrum board? I would really appreciate your assistance in helping me figure this out.
1. You can groom your backlog in the backlog of the scrum board, not sure why you need a seperate one, but it sounds like you have a reason..
2. As mentioned by others, you can create a seperate board, with the same project, and create a filter for that board that would show what you want to show. so if you want to show only status = New or what ever your status are that are prior to being worked on add that to your filter for your kanban board. You can edit it on the kanban board, and depending on what you change, it could move itself to the other board based on the other boards filters. Not sure if im helping
Boards are just a view, and what you see is based on the board filter.
Hi @Craig Brookhouse I currently have multiple projects that I manage in two boards with filters that distinguishes what issues are managed from one of the two boards. I want to use a kanban board to manage the backlog for issues from one of the two boards.
Can I create a kanban board using an existing filter that includes several projects or can I only create a kanban that includes one project and then apply filters? It doesn't seem to work for a filter that includes several projects. Sorry, this is fairly new for me and I'm still getting the hang of how to use Jira correctly. Newbie self training.
Can you check if this answers your question please?
If not, let me know
Hi do you have a reference to how one can do that? I haven't found that anywhere maybe I misunderstood. You mean I can have a project with parallel boards but completly independent only related by the fact that they are used to manage the same project. Could I have an overview of the tasks running on both boards, could I release on the same project versioning line and finally could I create for the project and then allow the manager to select which Board to use?
Jira is a great tool to use across different departments. Forget that paperwork – switch to Jira and get that tasks done smoothly. Marketing Jira allows for a complete digital transformation of you...
