we do not see deferred defects in the backlog.



For one of my project, we do not see deferred defects in the backlog. Is this because the system looks at the status as a ‘closed’ status?

I’m not sure if they automatically move to backlog.  Any advise or work around solution.

I can see several reasons why it wouldn't appear in your Backlog :

  • Check from your Board Settings => General that the Board query included the desired Jira status
  • If you're working in a Kanban with Backlog board, go to the Board Settings => Columns and check that the correct status is put in the "Backlog" part

Let me know if it helped,


Hi Guilhem,

Thanks for the inputs.


I can see in the Boards- for project  is karban borad- i have went to Columns- and i can see karbon blacklog and 3 columns -todo/inprogress/done. Under inprogress cloumn i can see the deffered status,.

Can you explain what “deferred” defects are? I assume that these are Issues that have in some manner been flagged as deferred? If so by what method are they flagged? Status, label, custom field?
