Some of the organizationally senior members of my company want to see the current sprints and backlogs of their various teams. How can I recreate an exact match for a backlog using only JQL?
I followed the query on the How to find issues in backlog using JQL with JIRA Agile? thread, but it returned a different number of results (close, though). Also, the ordering of the issues looked nothing like the backlog as seen from the Plan view of the SCRUM board. What am I missing?
Thanks, John. It's not matching, which is why this is so confusing. I used the exact same filter.
Logically there must be some information added to the board filter when displayed in the Plan section of a SCRUM boad. Otherwise, completed issues would display indefinitely like they do when running the straight JQL in the Search for Issues screen. Something causes the SCRUM Board to filter these out automatically, without being told.
If you use script runner it will add some icons to the planning board, the highlighted ones will take you directly to the issue navigator with the query that represents the backlog or sprint issues, or those issues added after the start of the sprint:
Jamie, this plug in worked, but didn't work. For example, the Board Backlog would indicate, say, 260 issues are in the Backlog, and clicking on that icon would take me to an issue navigator screen that showed, say, 5,206 issues. There is something more going on that creates that backlog that your plug-in's issue navigator did not account for. 260 <> 5,206. This is with JIRA 6.3.11, by the way.
Hrm... if you look at some of the 5206 issues, are there any that categorically should not be present? I'm not sure if the backlog in the board is limited in some way. The navigator will show subtasks whereas the board does not, but that probably doesn't explain the discrepancy.
