How to view all stories (Done/Not Done)

Abdulrahim Muhammad May 25, 2015

Once the issue or story is done/completed, it is removed from the backlog and it can be viewed either in sprint reports or under epics. However Its very important to know all the stories or issue together for review purposes. for example if some featue is missed or not, which hard to catch if they are scattered in different places.

How can we see all the stories together  whether done or not done, irrespective of epic too.

You will need to configure the board filter to include issues on those statuses. smile

Could you please share the steps to configure the filter.


Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Community Leader Feb 18, 2018

Go to the board configuration, look at the general tab, and you'll be able to see and edit the filter there.  (Assuming you are admin)

The done issues show in the filter, not on the board....

Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Community Leader Jan 14, 2019

Then the board is dropping them because it's supposed to - in Scrum, done issues will only show for the current sprint, in Kanban issues that are "released" (as defined by the sub-filter) don't need to be on the board, so they're hidden, and business boards drop the issues 2 weeks after it has been done.  Or you have applied a quick filter that hides the issues.

Boards are not supposed to show done issues after you've completed them - boards are about what you are working on, not what you've done.

Thanks; that explains what is going on behind the scenes.  I guess what peeps do not have is the visibility of what's happening and why. It's probably buried in docs somewhere but I've failed to find it.

I find the "Where's my field?" functionality an invaluable massive time saving feature.

Perhaps a similar feature in the boards config is required?

Hello Abdulrahim,

Assuming you want to also restrict it by sprint, you should be able to do that following this page: 

And simply adding the JQL parameters to filter issues by "Done" or "not Done"

Well I don't want to restrict to a sprint. All I am trying to achieve is to export all the stories in the project to an excel which can be used as a reference for requirements, for better tracking.

well few years late, and many the feature was not available that time, but now, the easier way is to create a custom search and export the search results to excel (CSV). To do that, you go to  "search" in the left navigation, and on the top,  you will see a query -- you can add something like "status = done" and it will show issues that are done. 


something like this:

project = XYZ and status = done ORDER BY status ASC
