Ive been tasked with generating some visibility into what the dev team is working on. What better way to do this then setting up some dashboards that I can hand to my manager, I would recommend that he go to the scrum board - but theres not enough data.. I cant seem to figure out how to filter stories and defects into a dashboard without bringing in every ticket (including backlog items that havent been assigned to a sprint yet). Is there an easy way to create a dashboard with specific filters from the issue level? I know that fix version can be used to box dashboards around releases, however we arent leveraging that field as of yet - is that imperative?
It sounds like you're trying to filter down to issues only within active sprints, or at least assigned to a particular sprint. Is that assumption accurate?
You can use some advanced searching or JQL to help filter down to issues within a specific sprint. Here's a couple of examples of JQL you can add to existing filters.
That Issue Navigator icon looks like this, by the way.
You can also filter issues based on most fields in JIRA, so filters can be as broad or granular as you need them to be. You can then use those filters in gadgets on dashboards to see the information you want to see.
Hope that helps - filters and dashboards are simple in theory, but configuring them to see exactly what you want to see can be a time-consuming process, that's for sure. :)
