Can I use Portfolio shared teams to filter kanban boards?


This is how we want to set up kanban board.

1. We have a project that we already use. This has been used with scrum boards.
2. We want to set up several kanban boards, 1 board for each team.
3. We have several shared teams set up in Portfolio.
4. We have set up the custom field "team" (originating in Portfolio) to be used in the issues and screens we need it to.

The question then is: How can I filter the different kanban boards so that it only shows issues with its respective shared team assigned to it?

When I try to add the field "Teams" to the board filter I get a message saying: "Team is not applicable for the current project and/or issue type".

How can I setup this custom field to work in board filters?

Hi @Øystein Heggernes Alvestad,


Teams filtering is indeed not yet available in the quick search but it works with the advanced search (JQL). See more here:

Let me know how that goes!




Hi @Thomas Barthelemy,

It worked like a charm. Thanks!
