How do I search for stories?

When I search for stories in the Sprints board, I can only see results of tickets and stories that are currently being worked on or are pending. How do I search old stories, stories in past sprints and stories marked as done?

I am not applying any custom filters to my search other than string / keyword match.

Hi Tod,

those views (backlog and board) show only the issues that are not completed.

To search all issues you have to click Issues > Search for issues and use that global search functionality.

Here is more information about how to search:

I hope this is helpful,



Thanks! @Jose Herrero That was very helpful 👍
