I know if I am right now delete scrum board, this can delete all of these issues. 
I am not that friendship with board filters, I just want to delete this scrum and make kanban the main board with these issues from scrum.
How can I do this?

Hello @Mateusz Szajek 

Welcome to the community.

Is the project a Company Managed project or a Team Managed project? It will say at the bottom of the navigation pane on the left.

If you are working with a Company Managed project, then you can create a new Kanban style board based on the existing project, and delete the Scrum board. As @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ said, the issues are in the project not in the board, so the issues will not be deleted if you delete a board. You will lose access to the Scrum related reports that are associated to the Scrum board if you delete the Scrum board.

If you are working with a Team Managed project, you can switch to a Kanban board by going to Project Settings > Features. Find the Sprints feature and turn it off. That will switch a Team Managed project from a Scrum board to a Kanban board.

Boards are not containers for issues, they are a view of a selection of issues.

There is no "move between boards", you just tell your new board to select the same issues.

Deleting a board will not touch the issues it was displaying.

You do not need to Migrate data from scrum to kanban.

Just create a new Kanban board and select the same project as source.  In order to delete a board, you could go to search bar -> Boards -> hit ... for the scrum board and select delete.

Data is of course not deleted, only the board.



Thank you, guys! All of your replies help me!
