My company runs currently 6 different projects. Besides that, we have 8 different teams (backend, frontend, design, marketing, animations, video, management, content)
Let's take only one project for example. How can I create one project, fill its backlog with issues and assign them to different teams? I would like to have different sprint for each team separately, but inside same project. And also I would like to have Project based Kanban board that would hold all issues in one place.
Shortly, I fill backlog with issues, and then start to assign them to different sprints (based on which team they belong), but also they appear in Kanban board.
Is this possible? I would appreciate step by step explanation.
I want to thank you for the effort about this problem. Your responses helped a bit, but I managed to create workflow by myself after lots YT clips, and forum posts.
Here is what I did:
- Created project with Scrum board in classic view
- Created one Master Board, and different boards for each team in that project
- Created Component with the name of each team so that I can filter by those components
- Went to each board settings and added filter query by Components, and selected component for each board
- Configured each issue to have Component drop down menu right bellow reporter for smoother experience
- Assigned each issue a component label
This way you have one master backlog, and separate team backlogs. When you start teams sprints, you will see sprints separately on each team board, and one Master sprint on main board.
Hope this helps everyone.
We have been using a similar approach. that said, this causes one problem. in the jira backlog, we can do filter based on only version and epic name. so when you create a jira from the jira backlog page, it auto populates version and epic name but doesn't populate component name. Due to this, the issue which you create using "one-liner" jira creation method available at the bottom of backlog, doesn't appear in the backlog after it is created because the "Component" is missing in the jira story created.
Hi @lukaloncar - Try using Project Components. This will allow you to associate each team with a Component. Then you can set the component(s) on each issue. You can then configure the filter for each team's board to show only issues that have that team's component assigned to it or use swim-lanes on one board to visually distinguish the different teams work.
if you do that though, there is no way to filter those cards in the epic/backlog/board views though, correct?
I'm also running into this problem where 3 team members only care about X type of cards, and another 2 only care about Y type. And it seems you can only filter off Epic and Issue Type, which doesn't work for our workflow currently.
Thinking about migrating back to a classic approach, but this question is very relevant to me in the moment
@lukaloncar Thanks for sharing your answer. I have similar issue and followed you answer. But I have another questions now.
With your solution, I created a project and I created one master board which has complete backlog for the project. I also created three boards(filtered with component) for 3 different dev teams. If i start sprint2 in board 2, sprint2 is also getting triggered automatically for the other boards. i wanted to have separate sprints for each team in their respective board that may or may not start and end at the same time. how can i do that?
when i have separate sprints for each board, how to start sprint in master board wrt other boards? how i can see sprint report as whole on master board?
Thanks in Advance
