How can I filter my GreenHopper Scrum Template Backlog by project component?

How can I filter my GreenHopper Scrum Template Backlog by project component?

The only filters I see are "my issues" and "recently updated".


Thanks for the help!

Hi Michael,

You can add additional quick filters to your GreenHopper Rapid Boards which will allow you to filter by project component.

To add quick filters

1. Go into the rapid board you'd like to configure

2. Click the "Tools" dropdown (located at the top right of the board). Select Configure.

3. On the Configure [Rapid Board] screen, select the "Quick Filters" tab (middle tab)

4. Name your Quick Filter and add JQL (component in ('[project component name here]').

5. Make sure to save your quick filter by clicking 'Add'.

Your quick filter should now show up on your rapid board.

Hope this helps!

IMO, this has not been adiquately answered. I too would like to know how to search and organize the backlog in the absence of a component filter.

Hi Michael, if you go to Tools/Configure you'll see the configuration screens for the board. On the Quick Filters tab you can create quick filters based on JQL statements. For this one you would name the filter, then use a simple JQL statement like filter = blah.

The rest of the quick filter doco is here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/GH/Configuring+Quick+Filters

hope this helps!

Thanks Jay!

I should have been more specific, how can you make a filter with a selectable parameter? Our backlog is divded into many components and so I want to be able to quickly filter to just a sub-set of the items in the backlog based on the different components. Doing it that way I'd have to define a static filter for each of maybe 10-15 components. Is there a way to make it dynamic, ideally with the filter accepting the value of a drop down box, etc?

This is a realy good question.

It would be very helpful to have a filter with dynamic / selectable Parameters.

Is there currently any way to create such a filter for a scrum board ?

Here is an open feature request for more manageable filters in GreenHopper: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-8095. If you like it, vote it up!

I have the same problem. I want to be able to *select* a component to filter by, not create a new Quick Filter for each of my dozen plus components. Michael's idea to do a component panel similar to the Epic panel is a good one.

As it stands, I have to somehow scan my stories to sort out which ones go with which components. Not ideal for us. Thanks!

Hi Hope,

I've added a feature request for Michael's idea to do a component panel similar to the epic panel which can be tracked here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-8316

If you like the feature, please vote for it.

Thanks,

Alex

I must agree with @Ian Wright; adding Quick Filters for the Work board does not help at all with backlog grooming on the planning board.
