I want to be able to view closed issues in the new plan mode

In the classic boards, we could filter open vs. closed issues so we could see both. In the new board, there is no way to view older, closed issues (even with the use of filters).

We would like to view closed issues in the new board to organize them into epics appropriately.

Actually, I was able to get this working after all.

You just have to change the column layouts in the new board.


Click Agile > Manage Boards > Find the board and go to configure > Columns > Then put "Resolved" or "Closed" status in the first column.

This will make resolved issues reappear in the backlog!

In addition, to open closed epics and view them on the board, you'll want to search for the "Epic Status" field and set them from "Closed" to "To Do". This should show the closed epics on the new boards (then you can "Mark as Done" to get them out of the way again)

Hey there, Murilo.

As far as I am concerned, you are not able to view Closed issues in the Rapid Board unlike the Classic Boards. Perhaps this can be considered as a feature request in the future release of GreenHopper. It is the expected behavior for now as the board is catered to show issues that are not in the Closed status (Backlog, Sprint).

Warm regards,

Danial

This was a terrible design. Closed issues need to show in the planning view. Issues should "disappear" from the planning view only after RELEASED. Please make JIRA work like a physical board so it maps to real-world workflows. Your utter lack of ability to design a decent UX is why we're going to waste a ton of money on more complicated "SAFe" modeling software like VersionOne.

Ugh, JIRA. Just make it not suck please.
