A little confused with my Agile column setup.
Obviously I have a closed status for an issue - is there a way of closing an issue simply from the Agile board? Clearly I cannot make a closed column without it filling up with closed issues.
You can edit the filter behind your board (through the board configuration screen).
Simply remove all issues with the status closed from this filter, then add the status closed to your Closed Column.
You'll be able to move issues to this column but they will not polute your board.
I use another method to avoid the sprint report etc. to get infected with "issue unmapped" type of warnings.
We do have the "Closed" status mapped on the board but I also have a quick filter named "!done" which simply filters the board using JQL:
status != Closed
This fitler cleans up the board nicely but keeps the reports usable. If needed users can also see the closed issues during the sprint for back-reference keeping the solution both elegant and agile.
