How to filter Sprints from a shared project with multiple teams


I am currently working on a project with multiple teams and now the management has decided to bring all of the teams into that one single project where parallel Sprints are being run.

I wanted to know how I can add filters to only show my team's issues and sprints. I migrated few issues on a test basis and tried adding a new label. It did work but, the active and future Sprints of the other teams are still being shown. 

Is there any way I could achieve this i.e. Filter out only my team's current and active Sprints, backlog, and all the issues assigned to the team.

Thanks in advance for the help! Cheers!

Hi @Richard Francis 

As an aside, that's the correct thing to do - one project should mean one backlog.

You will definitely need to use something to distinguish your team's work from other teams - the typical ones used are label and component. You could also create a new custom field to use, but I don't see the point when you can use one of the former.

Then you need to create a new board (a board is just a view into the data / project). you will set the board's filter as something like

project=ABC and component=myteam

That will stop any tickets from any other teams showing on your board.

Hi @Warren 

Thanks a lot for the quick response!

So, like you suggested above, I used the label and made a quick filter on the board. It did filter out all the other issues except for my team's but, the Sprints of all the other teams were still showing up in the backlog section.. active and future. I need to understand how to hide the Sprints from other teams in the backlog section, without having to create a new board

Hi @Richard Francis 

What I said above wasn't to use a quick filter, you need to create a new board, because then you can filter out other teams.
