Why can't I find a filter when creating a board? Edited

I have some issue filters like




with that I have them clearly structured.


Now, when I go to my Jira Board settings to change the filter and try to search for Project--board--description it won't be displayed. It looks like I can only find filters which have whitespaces in it.  



Ive used the Atlassian contact support button. when filling the first questions I got a link to paste my question here. Lets see how the community can fix that bug..

Hi @Can Özcan 

That seems related to this open defect for use of hyphens in board filter names:

Best regards,


Thanks. Thats exactly what I am facing. 

Since this seems to be an accepted problem I'll mark your reply as the answer.

Hi Can,

So do you get some values when you start typing the project? It might be that you have too many filters that start with the same name/value. Try trying in another word that is later in the value that is more unique, like chart or board. 

Thanks John,

Ive tried that but it doesn't show than any of my filters. Thats why I came to the conclusion that this only works with whitespaces. 

Here is an example:

Lets say I have two more Projects visible, like

OtherProject Dashboard
OtherProject RandomFilter

And I try typing "Dashboard" to use my 


the dropdown menu only displays "OtherProject Dashboard".

Ah, you are probably correct then, it doesn't recognize Dashboard as a separate word. So, yes, it sounds like you need to use spaces.
