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 👍

This is how pull stories from all Sprints (Open or Closed) and Backlog

1. Go to Backlog and click on the "Views Issues in Navigator".  On my Jira instance its the looks like a page with 4 horizontal lines to the left of it. image.png

2. Leave only project = XYZ and remove rest of the query.  Once you see all issues in the project, you can start amending your query to see the issues by issuetype or priority or something you like.  BTW, you can also use this to bulk amend issues e.g. to add bulk labels.



I am having the same issue and the link provided did not help. Can somebody help?
