Filter for Agile Backlog

I d like to get all tickets, which I see in my agile backlog, via a filter because it s sometimes necessary to sort backlog tickets or to do some mass actions.

The agile backlog counts 207 tickets at the moment.

I tried this filter:

project = XY AND issuetype != Sub-task AND status in (Open, "In Progress", Reopened, "Fixed - Approval", "Wird verifiziert", "Wartet auf Review") ORDER BY updated DESC

It s listing 235 tickets. I reduces the possible status but never geht the 207 tickets which match the tickets in the agile view.

Could you please tell me how to set up the suitable filter?

To get a more general solution, you should use the filter which is used for the board because it could be different to the project. And in some strange situation with multiple open sprints and future sprints I found the follwowing for all my projects.

Filter = "<<filter name>>" AND (Sprint is EMPTY OR sprint not in openSprints()) AND (sprint is EMPTY OR sprint not in futureSprints()) AND status not in (done,<<your other statuses for completeness>>) AND type not in (epic, subTaskIssueTypes()) ORDER BY rank

Thanks! This pretty much worked for me. Minor adjustments but got what I needed.

Here you are talking about the filter for the Backlog, but doesn't this same filter (called the Saved filter from the Board settings I believe) also get applied to the Active Sprints too?

Its really not clear in Jira at what level this board filter works.  If the filter is applied in Active Sprints too, I dont see how the above filter could work.

You probably need to add

and Sprint = NULL

to the query

That s it - thank you very much!

It s answered.
