Why are issues no longer in backlog or selected for dev showing up in the cumulative flow diagram? Edited

Does anyone know why issues that are no longer in the backlog or selected for development are showing up in the cumulative flow diagram?

The issues that appear here (below) no longer exist.

Hello @Peter Yoon 

Can you provide more information about your issue?

Are you working with a Team Managed project or a Company Managed project?

If a Company Managed project, what is the filter that is being used for the board for which this diagram has been generated?

Hi @Trudy Claspill 

I am working on a Company Managed project.
These are the filters I'm using:

Thank you!

From the screen image you presented, you don't have the Backlog column selected, which would explain why issues in the Backlog column are not included in your diagram.

And you do have Selected For Development selected, and based on the original image in your post those issues are included in the diagram; they are the largest color block on the top of the stacked color blocks.

Sorry for any confusion. Let me try to clarify.

I would like to show Selected For Development.

The large uptick that we see should not be there. Those issues are no longer Selected For Development.

The diagram shows the number of issues in that state on the date specified on the X axis. It looks like on Jun 2 a large number of issues were added to the project with the status Selected for Development, and as of Jun 3 they were still in that status.

When issues in the Selected for Development status are changed to another status, the color block for that status will decrease while the color block for the statuses the issues changed to will increase, while the overall cumulative total remains unchanged.

On what date did the issues change from Selected for Development to another status?

The issues were deleted. They no longer exist.

On what date did the issues change from Selected for Development to another status?

I'm not sure.

Btw. Thank you for working through this with me.

EDIT: Ah, I see. It looks like those issues are Epics. No wonder why I couldn't find them in the backlog or the Selected for Development section.

Do you know if there's a way to exclude Epics from the chart?

If you change your board filter to exclude them from the board entirely, that would exclude them from the chart.

Otherwise, you will need to create another Quick Filter for 


...and apply the Quick Filter to the chart.

Whoa. I didn't know Quick Filters applied to Cumulative Flow Diagrams. Thank you!
