Issues from next-gen project not showing in a classic board Edited


I'm testing next-gen projects in Jira Cloud.


We have a classic project with a cross-project kanban board where we include issues from several projects.  So far, with the classic projects we organized their workflows in a way that they could match and show all issues at the board.


I added two next-gen projects to the filter I use for that cross-project board, but I get an alert saying the following:

"Some issues in the Saved Filter will not be shown on the board. View unmapped statuses which contain these issues."

Screenshot 2018-11-08 11.14.42.png

It seems that for each next-gen project, it creates new status, duplicating them at the columns workflow management.  Now I have 3 statuses:

  • To do: Classic projects
  • To do: Next-gen project 1
  • To do: Next-gen project 2
  • Priority: Classic projects
  • Priority: Next-gen project 1
  • Priority: Next-gen project 2 


 It doesn't make any sense to reorder the workflow for each new next-gen project.


Any tips?

Hi @Guillermo Marqueta,

not sure if you're still interested in this response, but some others might find the solution also helpful.

In next-gen boards, you can't explicitly configure your workflow as you're used to in classic Jira projects. You modify the workflow by simply adding or rearranging the columns on your next-gen board.

Jira creates in the background a separate workflow for every project - and this is also the reason why you have to map for every next-gen project you want to add, the statuses again.


Thanks for your answer @Matthias Gaiser -K15t- and time,
that does not solve my issue, as I can map all the statuses of every next-gen project.


It seems Jira understands each status in each next-gen project as a different status.

While I am using the same workflow for all of them, at the cross-project board I need the same statuses to be shown as only one, not to include them duplicated as many times as number of projects using those status.

Hi @Guillermo Marqueta , I wonder if you were able to come up with a workaround for this? I am also struggling with the same issue. Thanks!

Nope, @Masha Aksenova we are using a board we already had created previously with the old version.
