Filter issue by project key for my board

Hi sorry if this has been asked before, i did a search but couldn't find the answer.

I want to have a simple JQL that will filter all projects issues, for my board filter.  At present I'm using, the project name...

Project = "my project name" ORDER BY createdDate ASC

The issue with this is, if my project name needs to change over the course of the project, this will break the JQL for the board, and no issues will display on my board.

What's the best practice JQL for getting all project issues on 1 board?
Is project key the way to go? as its unlikely to change.

Thanks in Advance :)

Instead of project name you can use the project key. It will also work.

project = ProjectKey
