Updating default user filters in Kanban Board

Howdy! =)

Is there a way I can customize the default query set in a Kanban Board (classic projects)?

(I mean the filters that appear next to the text search box above the Columns and are displayed with the avatar of all the users who have issues assigned).

By default, it applies a filter on the line of: issues assigned to the selected user.

Hi @Alfredo Muela , 


it is not possible to change the query associated to the user avatar on the board. You can however create your own quick filters that will match exactly what you need :


Let me know if this helps, 



Hi @Alexis Robert


Thanks for the prompt reply!! =)

It's a pity then. The idea was to reuse how compact they are, not having to keep updated the list, and moreover not having the two clicks of the Quick filters drop down... First World Problems, so nothing serious.

Do you think it is worth the time of creating ticket to include that feature? At the end of the day, the JQL for each user avatar must be somewhere...

There is already a ticket regarding some issues with these filters :

You can vote and comment on it to provide feedback and then hope Atlassian notices it :)
